Economic growth found in forests

Date : 4th November 2008, Source : BBC Link to News Story



Plans to use Scotland's forests to fuel economic growth and increase renewable energy capacity have been unveiled by Environment Minister Mike Russell. A consultation paper wants communities, landowners and the forestry sector to "unlock" the potential of woodlands. Its launch took place on the Annandale Estate in Dumfries and Galloway. Mr Russell said the nation's forests - worth about 850m - could make a vital contribution towards a "greener and wealthier Scotland".
