The Community Woodlands Association was established in 2003 as the representative body of Scotland’s community woodland groups. There are around 200 groups across Scotland, involved in or responsible for the management of thousands of hectares of woodland and open space. Just over half own their woodlands, the remainder lease or work through a variety of formal and informal partnership arrangements.
