Scotland’s forests and woodlands are a vital natural asset. If they are looked after well, they can produce a huge range of benefits for Scotland’s economy, people and environment. This is where the Forestry Commission come in. Our core purpose is to deliver multiple benefits by promoting the sustainable management of trees, woods and forests for the economy, for people and for the environment. West Argyll Forest District covers 91,800ha stretching from Appin in the North, to Southern Kintyre and includes the Isle of Mull.

There will be an element of steep ground working on some sites.
