Norway and Scotland – A Study in Land Use

Reforesting Scotland’s 1993 Norway Study Tour played a key role in showing what could be possible in Scotland.  Southern Norway has a different land ownership pattern and history to Scotland but a similar climate and landscape.


We have some physical display setups that can be borrowed for events.
