P&J Business Breakfast – Seeing the forest for the trees

P&J Business Breakfast – Seeing the forest for the trees



Seeing the forest for the trees – how current policy is offering investors opportunities through forestry in Scotland. 

Planting trees is an investment and also a carbon sink – join us at a virtual business breakfast event featuring a panel of expert speakers discussing how the two approaches are combining to take root in Scotland.

The Scottish Government is seeking to establish 18,000 hectares per year with 3,000 – 5,000 native woodland in an ambitious plan to meet net zero targets through growing forests to sequester carbon as well as foster private sector investment.

Through its executive agency, Scottish Forestry, the Scottish Government aims to maximise the economic output of forest and fibre resources. This approach takes in the establishment of productive, sustainably managed forests alongside forest tourism, timber harvesting, transport, downstream wood processing, primary manufacturing and woody biomass energy. Through its management of the Woodland Carbon Code, the agency is pioneering this approach for the whole of the UK.
