Reforesting Scotland Journal 53

Spring/Summer 2016 – Woods and Wellbeing

This issue of Reforesting Scotland looks at ‘Woods and well-being’. The many and obvious benefits of woodland extend from the wider ecosystem, where soils are built and flooding managed, and into our very souls. This issue is full of stories of the psychological healing which can and does take place in woodlands – from the Highlands to the Borders. Regular features include a special feature on Dick Balharry, who spent his life working to create a healthier wild Highlands where native wildlife thrives alongside people.
