To ask the Scottish Government, further to the debate in the Parliament on Forestry (Contribution to Net Zero) on 9 November 2022, what progress it is making on the delivery of the £100 million investment for the forestry sector to increase woodland creation.


Since 2021 the Scottish Government have made strong progress in meeting the 2021 PFG commitment to provide £100m of funding for new woodland creation during this parliament. We have already spent £96.3m and have commitments for a further £87.8m, for approved applications to create new woodlands during this parliamentary term.
