Revitalizing our local woodland culture

Scottish Wood is an innovative project born from extensive and ongoing research into the woodland culture in Scotland. It is the trading arm of the Dynamic Woods, a Scottish Charity that brings together local communities, environmentalists, landowners and local businesses to promote the sustainable development of our woodland resources. Its aim is to regenerate a thriving woodland culture, maximising the potential from our existing broadleaf woodlands. This in turn will secure the future of our woodlands; it will help to improve our local environment, boost our local economy and create genuine local employment and training opportunities.

Ethical Scottish Timber a Renewable Resource

Timber is a renewable resource however the vast majority of our local hardwood resources are wasted or underused. The hardwood industry is left mainly to a few large continental or English firms who send their salesmen to scour the land searching for the very best trees to export and process outside Scotland. Some of these products are then re-imported as prime grade timber or veneers. The rest of our timber is deemed "waste" or valueless, trees that have graced our land for hundreds of years are even dumped in landfill sites.

Hardwood timbers are not only beautiful they are also an environmentally sound building resource. Different species have different properties that make them ideal for certain uses. For more information about different timber see All About Hardwoods.
