Central Scotland Forest Home The Working Forest

The Central Scotland Countryside Trust wishes to encourage development of timber industries throughout the Forest area. Currently around 85% of timber used in the UK is imported.

Woodlands need forestry management, otherwise they become overgrown, derelict and unproductive and no longer provide the range of benefits intended. Work might include tree management (thinning, felling and replanting) to promote tree growth and produce wood, habitat management to encourage wildlife, or path management to improve recreational value.
