After centuries of decline, the last 25 years has seen an upsurge in action to restore and expand native woodlands within Scotland. The recent Native Woodland Survey which has taken seven years to complete provides a unique data set and a comprehensive picture of this woodland within Scotland.

John Tullis, Forestry Commission Scotland, will provide a background to the survey and outline the potential this spatial data set offers to inform a wide range of national, regional, local and site specific purposes including regional planning, development planning & management, future habitat networks, environmental assessments and the challenges posed by climatic change.

To provide a local authority perspective Ally Corbett, Development Officer, with the Glasgow & Clyde Valley Green Network Partnership will discuss the green network opportunities mapping which is being used by the partnership members to inform their local development plan policies, and to prioritise the delivery of Green Network within their areas
