Laggan Forest Trust

The Laggan Forest Trust was established in 1998, following negotiation with the Forestry Commission, to forge a partnership with which to jointly manage Strathmashie Forest. This partnership was the first of its kind in Scotland and is now represented by a 25 year partnership agreement, signed with Scottish Ministers in 2004.

The Trust’s aims are to:

  • Safeguard local community interests.
  • Try and increase employment revolving around Strathmashie Forest.
  • Reduce the depopulation rate and maintain all essential aspects of rural community life (i.e. the school, local shop, doctor etc.)
  • Conserve, regenerate and promote restoration of woodlands.
  • Promote all benefits of the woodland.

Operating as a development trust LFT undertakes a range of activities in the forest, working in partnership with the Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) as well as other community groups and organisations, and aspired to achieving economic sustainability through various enterprises.
