Scottish Government publish High Nature Value Farming and Forestry Indicators

Scotland is the first country in the United Kingdom to assess the extent and broad distribution of High Nature Value Farming and Forestry (HNVFF) systems.

A recently published Scottish Government report provides a baseline assessment of HNVFF against which progress of the Scottish Rural Development Programme (SRDP) can be monitored. The report highlights that in 2009, 40% of Scotland’s utilised Agricultural Area was estimated to be under High Nature Value farming systems, while 41% of the woodland area of Scotland was under High Nature Value forestry systems.
