Welcome to Confor
Following the application for membership considered at the last meeting of the Forum on 15 February, Confor, represented by Jamie Farquhar, has joined the Forum. The presentation given at the meeting can be viewed here.
The membership of Confor is a recognition of the Forum's increasing interest in forestry issues that includes the planned woodland expansion and also the importance of montane scrub.
Description from the website - Confor: promoting forestry and wood is a membership organisation that promotes sustainable forestry and low-carbon businesses. Confor represents and supports members by helping build the market for wood and forest products, creating a supportive policy environment, and helping members to become more competitive and successful.
Our numbers remain at 30 member organisations as the Moorland Group and Scottish Land & estates have decided to amalgamate into a single membership.
