About us

Croft Woodlands

Growing trees in the north and west of Scotland presents both unique challenges and benefits. Our Croft Woodlands advisory team helps crofters, smallholders and common grazings to create and manage woodlands that will flourish.

Did you know?

We directly manage around 60 woodland sites from Stranraer to Sutherland and Skye to Aberdeenshire; from urban Glenrothes and Livingston to remote Loch Arkaig in Lochaber.

Find a wood

Scotland has better tree cover than the rest of the UK but is poorly wooded compared to most of Europe. Just 18% of Scotland has tree cover compared to a European average of 37%. And only 4% of Scotland is native woodland and over half of those woods are in poor condition. Just 1% of our land area has ancient woodland.

Our woods are free to visit. To find one near you use our wood search page.
