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.

We intend to award a framework agreement for rhododendron and invasive vegetation control covering West Argyll Forest district.

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