This report provides a summary account of the present extent, distribution, composition and condition of the native woodlands in the Scottish Lowlands. There are approx 29,000 ha of which over half is of natural origin and commonly of birch and oak. In the planted areas, oak, ash and elm predominate. The percentage of native species in the Lowlands has declined progressively since the Second World War, but there is a recent trend of increased new planting. This publication is still available to order in hardcopy.
