Scotland's Finest Woods Awards 2017

This scheme is an annual competition aiming to recognise and reward the woods and forests that are managed to the highest standards and act as a beacon for modern woodland heritage.

  • Community Woodlands Awards: Community-based projects compete for this Scotland-wide award with two competitions for both small and large community woodland groups so covering the full spectrum of community forestry in Scotland. The striking Tim Stead Trophy and prize money are up for grabs.
  • New Native Woods Award: New native woodland projects compete for this award: the unique Woodland Trust Scotland Trophy new in 2016 and a cash prize are available to be won.
  • Quality Timber Awards: Focusing on growing quality timber, woodland owners and their managers can compete in one of, or all, our three competitions with three magnificent trophies and prize money at stake: the competitions are for ‘newly-planted commercial woodland’, ‘single stands/small woods/compartments’ or ‘whole estates & larger multi-purpose forests or woodlands’.
  • Schools Award: Schools and pre-school projects can enter this ever-popular award. We seek out Scotland’s most fun-packed school woodland projects with prize money plus other prizes available to be won. Pupils, teachers and many helpers have great fun taking part!

The deadline for receipt of entry forms is 31 March 2017.
