Forestry and Land Scotland underpins the Scottish forestry sector with vital timber supplies and supports many other businesses. It looks after Scotland's national forests and land to enhance biodiversity, support tourism and increase access to the green spaces that will help improve Scotland’s physical and mental health and well-being.

As an agency of the Scottish Government, Forestry and Land Scotland is central to the Scottish Government’s commitment to ensure that our treasured forests and woodlands are sustainably managed and are a resource that works for all parts of Scottish society – from large and small businesses to the nine million visitors and members of the public who wish to visit woodlands for recreation.
