Scotland's trees and woods are amazing. From the stunning remnants of Caledonian pine forest to the amazing Atlantic oakwoods of the west coast, our woodlands are a fantastic place to explore and enjoy.
Nearly a fifth of Scotland's land is covered by trees, but less than a third of that is native woodland. We want to protect the woods that we have, encourage others to create new woods by planting trees, and also restore ancient woodland where possible.
We care for and manage 80 woods in Scotland covering 8,500 hectares, stretching from Stranraer in the south up to Sutherland in the north.
The woods include nationally and internationally important woodland sites as well as urban and community woodland.
Our largest property is Glen Finglas which lies in the heart of Scotland's first national park – Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. The site covers 4,863 hectares (12,016 acres). It is steeped in history at one time forming part of the royal hunting forest. It attracts thousands of visitors each year who come to marvel at the panoramic mountainous landscapes.
Our woods face more threats than ever before. Learn more about how you can help.
