This year the Sylva Foundation is delighted to be a supporter of Scotland’s Finest Woods Award. The award chimes perfectly with the recent expansion of the support we offer to Scottish woodland owners through the myForest service – read more.
The Scotland’s Finest Woods Award 2016 is now open for entries! For more information and to apply visit their website at: www.sfwa.co.uk.
Entries to all four categories are encouraged and there is one for all aspects of the very best standards of woodland management across Scotland including:
- quality timber at whole estate or compartment/stand/small wood scales;
- new woodlands both native and commercial;
- community woodlands; and
- schools and pre-schools projects related to trees, woodlands or forests.
Angela Douglas Executive Director of Scotland’s Finest Woods, said:
“We, at Scotland’s Finest Woods, want to recognise the very best of Scotland woods, their management and all they can offer.”
In 2016 there is nearly £7,000 of prize money and striking trophies for winners. Do you have a wood you are involved with, own or manage that you consider could be one of the finest in Scotland? If so, don’t delay apply today! Simply complete a short entry form with basic location, contact details and state in no more than 500 words why you think your entry would make a worthy winner of the particular prestigious award.
Entries are encouraged before the year ends on 31st December 2015. Please submit as early as possible, ideally before Christmas 2015. Any entries received after 31st March 2016 will not be considered. The closing date for next year (the 2017 Awards) onwards will change to end December at the very latest annually, except for Schools that will remain with a 31st March deadline.
