To ask the Scottish Government what analysis it has carried out of the impact that land reform could have on the establishment of productive woodland in forests.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 29 July 2016

The Scottish Government has an ambitious land reform programme, including implementing the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016 and establishing the Scottish Land Commission to consider the effect of law, policies and practices in the management and use of land in Scotland to help from a wider evidence base for future land reform measures.

Through Forestry Commission Scotland, we are helping to empower communities across Scotland to use, manage and own woodlands.
