Argyll Small Woods Cooperative

The Scottish Wood Culture Portal

Welcome to the Scottish Wood Culture Portal. This is a new initiative by the Argyll Small Woods Cooperative, designed to bring together in one place the wide range of individuals, groups and agencies involved in working in the small-scale wood sector.

The purpose of the portal is to make connections, encourage collaboration and engender a wood culture in Scotland to improve the utilisation of the domestic timber resource. The portal will enable:

  • Small woodland owners and managers to easily access advice and information that will help them create and manage their woods,
  • woodland and forestry contractors to connect with owners and develop their businesses,
  • people working with and selling wood products to promote their businesses,
  • people working in the wood sector can access events, training, volunteering and job opportunities in the wood sector.
