Forest Research - Much more than Trees

Forest Research is the research agency of the Forestry Commission. It is a world leader in the research and development of sustainable forestry and is Britain's principal organisation for forestry and tree related research, with specialists covering topics from managing timber and protecting woodland from climate change, to tracking new pests and diseases, and examining the social and community benefits of woodland in urban and rural areas.

Forest Research publishes reports of research and organises, or participates in, a range of events in Scotland where scientists share knowledge and understanding of key topics.
