The Trust signed a ‘Concordat’ with Forestry and Land Scotland (previously The Forestry Commission) in 2000, covering South Strome Forest. This is a partnership agreement involving the community in management of the Forest. See the Library page for the Concordat document.
The Concordat has facilitated increasing and restoring areas of native woodland through involvement in the planning process. This also involved working with Trees For Life volunteers.
Through the Concordat the Trust has also lobbied for use of local contractors for planting and felling, and in 2003 the Trust had a network of footpaths constructed in Strome Wood.
