Scottish native seed sources guidance document sets out Scottish Forestry (SF) policy for selecting suitable origins, provenances, and categories of planting material for planting native species of trees and shrubs in Scotland.

It is primarily intended for those planting species that are native to Scotland, both within their native range and in other parts of Scotland (see Table 1 in the document).

The guidance may also be used to help source suitable provenances of species that are native to other parts of Britain, but have been introduced and become naturalised in Scotland.
