Welcome to the RSFS

The Royal Scottish Forestry Society exists to promote excellence of forestry in Scotland for the benefit of the present and future generations. What we do brings people together to improve knowledge an understanding of forestry with a strong emphasis on sharing practical experience.We have an active programme of field visits across Scotland. This provides an opportunity to visit a wide variety of woods and forest and discuss their management and development.

Our members come from across all sections of the forest industry in Scotland ranging from those with an interest in the forests, woods and trees of Scotland to forestry professionals and those with a broader interest in the land and trees.

Take some time to browse information About Our Society and have a look at What We Do.   Why not, for less than the price of a cup of coffee a week, join us?
