ANYONE with an interest in trees and forestry should make space in their diary on August 22 and 23 for Forestry Expo Scotland 2019.

Hosted at at Little Clyde, Elvanfoot, near Biggar, this unique harvesting demonstration and trade event is being brought to life by Forestry Journal, the leading forestry sector's leading magazine, several global machine manufacturers, and public event and trade exhibition organiser Rural Projects.

The Scottish Forestry industry generates over £1 billion to the economy and for those two days in August, the eyes of the forestry world will be on Scotland. Visitors to FES will be able to view the latest in timber harvesting technology working at full capacity across the event's duration. It is anticipated over 10,000 cubic metres will be harvested during this industrial scale demonstration.

Building on the success of 2014's Forestry Harvesting Demo, FES 2019 is backed by the four dominant global manufacturers – John Deere, Komatsu, Ponsse and Tigercat – and will also feature a further 100 exhibitors showcasing the very latest in all aspects of timber growing and processing technology.

Rural Projects' managing director, Martin Dare, commented: “We are extremely pleased and proud to be working closely with Forestry Journal and our key sponsors to deliver this first Forestry Expo. This exciting new event will provide the perfect platform for anyone working in the industry. The Little Clyde location allows two days of skilled harvesting demonstrations complimented by the adjacent exhibition area.”

Magazine publisher, Darren Bruce, added: “We believe Forestry Expo Scotland bridges a gap in the market place and highlights all that is unique and innovative about the forestry industry, providing a compelling and informative focus specifically to the harvesting sector.”

Forestry Expo 2019 will take place on August 22 and 23 at Little Clyde, Elvanfoot, Biggar, South Lanarkshire ML12 6RL. If you would like to receive more information on the event contact 0131 333 0969 or email
