Forestry and Conservation Group


The work of our forestry and conservation group is supported by strong links between the Scottish School of Forestry and the forestry sector, regionally, nationally and internationally. The team has a focus on timber technology, forest biodiversity and ecology, forests and people.

Based at Inverness College UHI, the Forestry and Conservation Group aims to build connections with forest users, explore management issues and study the biodiversity of forests within a wider landscape.  Three research areas represent the growing expertise base of this team :

  • Timber technology;
  • Forest biodiversity and ecology;
  • Forests and people.

This team continues to grow by developing postgraduate research, applied research with strong industry links, community engagement and entrepreneurship.  Primarily the team aims to raise awareness and participate in knowledge exchange to encourage a better future for our forests and landscape.
