We manage and look after 60 Scottish sites, from Glen Finglas, our largest, to our very first mountain – Ben Shieldaig!

On 6 May 2021, millions of voters across the country decided who will make up the next Scottish Parliament.
The new Members of the Scottish Parliament have the power to set the country on the right trajectory to tackle the climate and nature crises. Decisive action for Scotland’s native woods and trees is key to some of the most pressing problems facing our society. The elections were a crucial moment in determining the political leadership that will have the power to act ahead of COP26 and to reach Scotland's ambitious target to reduce 75% of greenhouse gases by 2030.
Now that representatives in the Scottish Parliament have been elected, we will be working with new MSPs to make sure that native woods and trees remain high on the agenda and that the action we need happens. Thanks to the hundreds of people that contacted their candidates, we have a powerful springboard from which to drive forward ambition and action.
We'll be working with the Scottish Government to ensure delivery of its manifesto commitments for trees and woods.
