22 November 2021

Confor has congratulated Wildland Cairngorms after the project was named as the winner of the Forestry and Woodland prize at the Nature of Scotland Awards 2021.

It is the second year that Confor has sponsored the award. 

Stuart Goodall, Chief Executive of Confor, said: “Congratulations to Wildland Cairngorms as worthy winners of this year’s highly competitive Forest and Woodland Award. In this year of COP26 it’s been great to see so many high-quality projects being put forward that showcase forestry and nature working together in harmony. 

“It’s so vital that all of us across the full forestry and woodland spectrum seek to tackle the climate and nature emergencies in a holistic way.” 

The winners in the ten award categories - which recognise the very best in Scottish nature conservation - were honoured at an online ceremony.
