Scotland’s Finest Woods Awards

These awards celebrate the contribution that woodlands can make to the people, environment and economic prosperity of Scotland

2020 Scotland’s Finest Woods Awards: Executive Director Statement 18/03/2020

As many of you will have heard, The Royal Highland Show has been cancelled due to Covid-19.  Scotland’s Finest Woods Awards will therefore be unable to hold its annual Awards Ceremony at the event on Friday 19th June as planned.

There are a number of options open to us – to hold local presentations, to delay until later in the year or to ‘carry over’ the 2020 Awards into 2021 (as well as potentially others).

The final decision will depend on the Government’s continually updated advice, the spread of the virus over the coming months and especially its impact on the ability of our judges to visit sites across Scotland.

For now, we encourage anyone planning to enter the 2020 Awards to get their entries in.  We have already received a good number of early entries and the deadline of 31st March remains.

We will aim to make a further statement soon after 31st March, and in the meantime, we thank you for your patience and wish you all well in these most challenging times.
