Our Society

The Society was formed in 1854 and has served its members continuously since then.  Our members come from a wide spectrum. Some are involved in forestry or the timber industry, in conservation and woodland management. There are academics, enthusiastic amateurs and representatives from almost every aspect of Scottish life. The important and all inclusive point is that we love trees and care for the environment.

The society has 5 regional groups, each of which organises visits and talks within their area. We also run a four day Annual Excursion for all members and for you wherever you are based. The Society produces a journal “Scottish Forestry” which is free to members. The journal is internationally recognised and is distributed to academic institutions from China to Canada and all destinations between.

Through these two mediums, Monitor Woods and the Cashel Millenium Forest (held in trust by our subsidary RSFS Forest Trust Company), we promote good and best practice in forest husbandry, forest education and woodland conservation.

We are a registered charity (registered number SC002058) and the Society is the guided on behalf of Members by the Board.
