The enormous potential of forestry in helping Scotland to meet its climate change targets - and delivering a range of other significant benefits - has been highlighted at the Scottish Parliament. Matthew Bell, Chief Executive of the Committee on Climate Change, told the Environment, Climate Change & Land Reform Committee that 16,000 hectares of new woodland should be planted annually by 2030 if Scotland was to hit its ambitious targets.
