Voices of the Forest Reprint
Carried out by: Birlinn Ltd/ Mairi Stewart
The purpose of this project is to support a reprint of 'Voices of the Forest' which was originally supported by SFT. This book, published in 2016, tells the fascinating story of the human side of Scottish forestry, drawing heavily on the thoughts, experiences and reflections of over 120 individuals from all levels and sectors of the industry as it developed over the last 100 years. The book is in full colour throughout, with 230 images, 15 maps, and is 360 pages in length, including a detailed index. It was well received, and the first print run of 1000 copies sold out in 2018, i.e. over a period of three years. This reprint will ensure that the book is again available for the public to buy.
