The Woodland Strategy for Ayrshire and Arran was
produced in 2003. It highlights the potential
benefits of woodland to the region and how these
benefits can be provided.
It was recognised that just producing a Strategy
was not enough. Further support was essential to
ensure the Strategy's successful delivery.
The question was what form this support should
The answer was to form a Partnership of key organisations
to promote and support delivery. The Partnership
was formed, and in April 2004 a Project Co-ordinator
was employed to manage the day-to-day activities.
