Find out more about Borders Forest Trust

Borders Forest Trust was established in 1996 to help restore native woodland to Southern Scotland and to encourage an interest in woodland culture with those in the local community.

Since then we have set about reviving the Wild Heart of Southern Scotland through demonstrating excellence in ecological restoration of our own properties, and through partnerships encouraging the development of woodland culture, enabling people to access woodlands, developing habitats and supporting environmentally sustainable economic activity.

So far we have planted over one million native trees in the south of Scotland.
