Forestry and Land Scotland is the Scottish Government agency entrusted with the management of Scotland’s national forests and land. Established on April 1, 2019, following the amalgamation of the functions previously carried out by Forestry Commission Scotland and Forest Enterprise Scotland, the agency now also oversees the newly devolved responsibilities in forestry within Scotland.

Forestry and Land Scotland’s primary mission is the stewardship of Scotland’s forests and land, with a strong commitment to benefiting both the present and future generations. Their multifaceted approach encompasses activities geared towards enhancing biodiversity, supporting tourism, and expanding access to green spaces. By doing so, they aim to contribute to the improvement of physical and mental health and overall well-being in Scotland.
