About the National Stakeholder Group

The National Stakeholder Group advises Scottish Government on strategic policy issues influencing the implementation of forestry strategy objectives, forestry targets and connected Scottish Government outcomes.

The group act as an advisory forum for Scottish Government, rather than a decision-making body, and will discuss:

  • strategic issues that influence the Scottish Government’s long-term vision for forestry
  • Scottish Government outcomes and delivery of climate change, biodiversity and forestry targets
  • the implementation, monitoring and statutory reporting of Scotland’s forestry strategy

National Stakeholder Group discussions will help shape the long-term strategic issues that will inform the future of forestry in Scotland.
