The Social History of Forestry
Carried out by: University of the Highlands and Islands
This project aims to research through personal interviews and ultimately produce a book describing the contribution that forestry has made to the social fabric and economy of Scotland. Looking back to the early 1900's, the work will include interviews with a number of surviving individuals who either worked in “the forestry” or had an influence in its policy development including the added value processing sector.
Further assistance of £1,000 was provided in 2016 to enable full colour illustrations for the book now called "Voices of the Forest".
SFT Funds Awarded: £22,000
