Forestry strategy project

We are developing a Forestry Strategy for Scotland which will underpin our ambitions for forestry and have sustainable forest management at its core.

We are consulting on a draft strategy which builds on and modernises the approach undertaken in previous forestry strategies. The strategy will provide a 10-year framework for action to help achieve a 50-year vision for Scotland’s woodlands and forests.

The public consultation on Scotland's Forestry Strategy 2019 to 2029 was launched on 20 September 2018 and will close on 29 November 2018.

We aim to gather views that will inform the content and structure of the final strategy, which we aim to lay before the Scottish Parliament in early 2019.
