The Awards’ programme recognises excellence in forests, woods and forest-related projects across Scotland.

This year’s programme included a special Centenary Award to mark 100 years since the 1919 Forestry Act that created the Forestry Commission and recognised the importance of forestry in our country.  This unique one-off Award is for woodland management that has adapted to change and shows resilience both from the past and in preparation for the future.
