Harvesting guidelines

Awareness of Scotland's wild resources is increasing, and markets for Scottish wild products are developing, so the need for a culture of sustainable harvesting is becoming more and more urgent. This section of the ForestHarvet website gives information about the three sets of harvesting guidelines which have been drawn up in recent years:

The Scottish Moss Collection Code (2007)
The Scottish Bulb Collection Code (2007)
The Scottish Wild Mushroom Code (2003)
Identifying fungi in the Sunart oakwoods area
Other harvesting and collecting guidelines

The work of creating this Harvesting Guidelines section of the ForestHarvest website was funded by the Scottish Forestry Trust, as part of the funding to develop the Scottish Moss and Bulb Collection Codes.
