RSFS COVID-19 update

Check here for updates  All upcoming RSFS events cancelled

In line with government guidance on Covid-19, we have decided to cancel all Royal Scottish Forestry Society events from now to the end of July.  Like many other bodies, we are taking this action to stop unnecessary travel and to protect both vulnerable people and the wider population.

This applies to regional field days, the annual study tour and training workshops.  We are grateful to the many woodland owners and managers who offered to host events for RSFS.  We hope these postponed events can be reinstated once circumstances allow.  We will contiune to follow government advice and provide updates here.

 

Tall Trees Small Woods

Available now to pre-order. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are advised that the publication date for this wonderful book has been set back to late Q1 2021.

This iconic book by the late Bill Mutch has been updated by the RSFS to reflect 21th century forestry practice while still retaining the charm of the original.  As a lover of trees, woodland owner or somebody who just likes to muck about in the woods - this is the book for you. It is a comprehensive guide to growing and managing woodlands written in a straightforward style with explanatory line drawings and colour illustrations.

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?
