Books & Other Media
We have been involved, directly and indirectly in a number of books over the years. More information on these and to buy them dorectly from us, visit the shop.
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. The insights from the tour are still relevant and you can download the booklet describing them here. You can also read a follow-up document, an evaluation report on the progress in Scotland in the decade after the tour. In 2018, the Land Revival study tour went back on the road to look at the situation in Scotland again.
We have some physical display setups that can be borrowed for events.
Forest Gardening Display
The Forest Gardening display was created by Alan Carter, a Reforesting Scotland director and author of Of Plums and Pignuts. The core of the display consists of 9 A3 laminated posters full of information and attractive images.
The Reforesting Scotland Exhibition Display
Reforesting Scotland has display materials that can be used for events, exhibitions, etc.
