Commonwealth Woods around the World

Some of the world’s forests are essential to human survival, providing food and shelter.

Others have the richest diversity of wildlife on the planet.

The 14 Commonwealth Woods in Glasgow are linking up with the 54 countries in the Commonwealth, through teaching and learning in Glasgow schools - and through the wise management of our woods and forests.

Find out what’s going on in your local wood on the news pages.
