Scottish Land & Estates Welcomes Native Woodland Survey Report
Scottish Land & Estates has welcomed today’s publication of the Native Woodland Survey of Scotland by Forestry Commission Scotland.
Andrew Midgley, Head of Policy at Scottish Land & Estates, said: “Our native woodlands are a hugely important resource and we welcome the report as a good basis on which all interests can come together to ensure a healthy future for these habitats.
“The survey results provide a useful map of Scotland’s native woodland and this will be of huge benefit to policymakers and landowners in maintaining and enhancing these areas in future decades.
“During the last 25 years, much has been done by agencies and landowners to restore native woodlands and we would encourage continued partnership and dialogue between all relevant parties to ensure that environmental, economic and social issues are considered when planning for the future of these sites.”
