By working with the Scottish Woodlot Association, both licence holders and landowners are using a Licence mechanism to achieve small scale family forestry through local tenure.

  • Both landowners and licence holders gain the advantages of working with other co-op members, who are foresters, sawmillers, and contractors.
  • The Woodlot Licence scheme is designed to be used on small-scale non-commercial woodlands.
  • Use of the Annual Allowable Cut prevents overcutting and mismanagement.
  • Sample Licence agreements are available from the Association.
  • Our Woodlot Licence scheme has been running for 5 years and we have drawn on our experience from Woodlot Licence on the ground.
