Central Scotland Forest Home


The Central Scotland Forest is being created by a large number of people and organisations working in partnership, including members of the public, 15 "formal" partners, many "informal" partner organisations, and a wide range of other groups.

Many of these partner organisations have their own websites, some of which can be accessed directly from this page by clicking on the highlighted partners' names. Other interesting sites can be accessed through the Links section of the site.

The formal partners are:

Attractive Woodland Setting
An attractive woodland setting for business

Environmental Regeneration Projects

There is also a wide range of "informal" partners who contribute to the Forest's development in many ways, especially by:

Among them are:

The Scottish Agricultural College (SAC), the Farming & Wildlife Advisory Group (FWAG), Historic Scotland, the Scottish Wildlife Trust (SWT), the Woodland Trust, the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers Scotland (BTCV Scotland), the Scottish Environmental Education Council (SEEC), the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), Sustrans, the Scottish Tourist Board (STB), British Waterways (BW), the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland, Timber Growers Association, Royal Scottish Forestry Society and private-sector forestry consultants and woodland advisers.

Many other organisations and individuals also contribute financially and practically to the Forest, including farmers, private landowners, businesses, and local community and environmental groups.
