 The Scotland's Finest Woods Awards are held every year to celebrate all that is best in the management of our woods and forests and to showcase how they contribute to the wealth and wellbeing of Scotland's people.

With 2011 designated as International Year of Forests, this year’s Awards include a special competition to promote the Central Scotland Green Network.

The prestigious Community Woodlands Award is focusing exclusively on Central Scotland - the prize will be awarded to the best community or urban woodland project or other social forestry project which engages people with their environment.

Entry is open to community, urban or social projects from the CSGN Activity Area and there is £3,000 in cash prizes available - £2,000 for the winning project and a £1,000 for the runner-up prize. In addition the stunning Tim Stead Trophy will be awarded.

All you have to do is complete a short entry form with basic project details and state in no more than 500 words why you think your project would make a worthy winner of this prestigious award. Find out more at www.sfwa.co.uk where full details and entry forms are available.
