Royal Scottish Forestry Society
Membership

Joining us, you will meet members who are new to the Society, new to forestry or indeed who have been members for 50 years, are retired, but remain passionate about forests, woodlands and trees of Scotland.  The warmth of our members and breadth of their experience, knowledge and ideas with a willingness to share these with others makes the Society truly unique.

Paying by direct debit, membership still only costs less than a cup of coffee every fortnight at your favourite high street coffee shop. Looked at in the round, we feel our member benefits represent very good value for money.  

The archive of Scottish Forestry contains more than 300 editions and all members have this available at their fingertips  Recall that there was a note in our eNews, uniquely, our eNewsletter archive is wholly available to members online.  As well as these trusted information sources, you get access to Regional Field Days and early bird rates for our paid events.

Individual membership is open to anyone with a love the forests, woodlands and trees of Scotland. 

Employers with 3 or more declared staff members may elect to join our corporate membership scheme. Corporate sponsors will be asked pay on invoice at a 10% discount to the direct debit rate for each declared staff member.  An annual declaration of forestry staff members is required each year, and only declared staff member will be eligible to access any member benefits and discounts.

Those who hold are matriculated as students with an accredited Further or Higher Education institution can still be members for a very modest subscription.  Student members are welcome at all Regional Field Days, and at paid events on payment of the fee.  We aim to provide two sponsored places at each year's Annual Study Tour at no cost to the Student Member.
