Roseanna Cunningham was set to visit the national nature reserve, the Hermitage of Braid, to mark the publication.
The first eight summary reports arising from the Native Woodland Survey of Scotland (NWSS) — being carried out by Forestry Commission Scotland — were to be published today (10 May).
The reports highlight the findings in the local authority areas for Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee, North, South and East Ayrshire and East Renfrew.
Other attendees include Forestry Commission Scotland staff, and representatives from City of Edinburgh Council, Pentland Hills Regional Park and Friends of Hermitage.
