The Scottish Forestry Strategy: Implementation Plan (2013-16) and Progress Report (2012-13)


The Scottish Forestry Strategy was published in October 2006. Implementation of the Strategy has been focused on delivering forestry benefits to Scotland to help achieve the Scottish Government’s wider policies and contribute towards its National Outcomes. The Strategy includes a commitment to publish implementation plans to guide delivery. Recognising the crosscutting nature of forestry, the Strategy is organised around seven key themes. For each theme, this 2013-2016 Implementation Plan sets out actions for the coming year, involving around 100 action partners, and suggests directions for the following two years.

This progress report also summarises what action partners have delivered in 2012-2013 against the three Strategy outcomes. Most of the 205 actions identified in the 2012-2013 Implementation Plan were achieved, or are underway. More detail on progress is given in each of the theme and regional sections of the 2013-2016 Implementation Plan
