Reforesting Scotland

The Reforesting Scotland Journal was established in 1989 as The Tree Planter’s Guide to the Galaxy, a journal aimed at ‘people growing and planting trees for conservation or environmental rehabilitation’. It became the Reforesting Scotland Journal in 1991. The new organisation was established to develop the vision of The Tree Planter’s Guide to the Galaxy and to support the growing network.

The publication of a magazine remains central to the work of Reforesting Scotland, as the main tool to spread information about ecological and social regeneration of Scotland. Each issue carries a range of articles dealing with a specific theme, as well as regular ‘Woodland reports’, the ‘First shoots’ guest column and other frequent threads such as ‘Artists in wood’ and ‘Schools report’.

If you join Reforesting Scotland, you will receive a copy of the Reforesting Scotland Journal and The Radical Rowan Newsletter with your subscription. Copies of the journal are also available to non-subscribers.

There’s a crash coming – a slap from Mother Nature. This isn’t pessimistic; it’s realistic.

The human impact on nature and on each other is accelerating and needs systemic change to reverse.

We’re not advocating poverty, or a hair-shirt existence. We advocate changes that will mean better lives for almost everyone.
