What we do
The Society is a welcoming, diverse organisation which is focussed on:
With around 20 visits each year to woods and forests, there are always sights to see—from ancient woodland to the most modern forestry practice. Breath-taking scenery, knowledgeable guides, and gracious hosts make these trips deeply rewarding for members from all walks of life.
The Society takes its role in informing people about trees and forestry seriously. Our highly-regarded, full-colour journal, delivered free to members, combines rigorous academic thinking with general topics close to forest-lovers’ hearts. Our website adds many archived articles and news items together with a full calendar of visits, seminars and social events for members.
We want to hear what our members say and think about forestry topics old and new. Each member has much rich experience to pass on, whether as a scientist, forester or simply as a lover of Scotland’s woodland heritage. Those combined voices can be heard by the wider community—benefitting both the environment and the economy.
