Welcome to the RSFS website

The Royal Scottish Forestry Society exists to promote excellence of forestry in Scotland for the benefit of present and future generations. Our aim is to bring people together, to improve knowledge and understanding of forestry with a strong emphasis on sharing practical experience.

All RSFS events are ticketed.  Most events are free of charge though donations (recommended £3) are most welcome.  You will be unable to attend without a valid ticket, though you will be able to book right up until 15 minutes before the event.  Click on the event to book your place (max 3 places per person).

Strategic review update #1

The Board is beginning to develop a new strategic plan for 2021 to 2026. These will set out how we will deliver some of the ideas floated in the 2020 Scottish Farmer article. We will present our plans to the AGM in 2021. In the meantime we will present notes in the members' only pages and we would welcome your feedback to what is proposed.
