Dumfries estate hosts next generation of foresters
Crown Estate Scotland has teamed up with Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) to host innovative forestry management and operations courses for students.
Crown Estate Scotland manages 5,000 hectares (around 12,000 acres) of commercial forestry, mostly in Glenlivet. With typical forest tree plantings taking 50 to 70 years to mature, we take a long-term view and work with communities and partners such Forestry Commission Scotland to promote multi-purpose forest management.
