Introduction
WELCOME TO THE FORESTRY MEMORIES IMAGE LIBRARY

The Forestry Memories Image Library is a manifestation of the partnership between the University of the Highlands and Islands Centre for History, the Forestry Commission Scotland, and the Scottish Forestry Trust, based on a wider research project into the social history of forestry in Scotland in the twentieth century. Read about that and the new Voices of the Forest: A Social History of Scottish Forestry in the Twentieth Century book here. You can see the main Forestry Memories site at any time, by clicking on the web address forestry-memories.org.uk or above, at the left of the screen.

The Forestry Memories Image Library contains pictures of interest to those who may work or have worked in the Forestry Industries in Scotland. Images can be viewed by year, by album, by manufacturer or by contributor, or you can use the simple search at the top of this page. Just put in something like "chainsaw" or the name of a place "Fort Augustus" to get some results. Note the Advance Search facility as well. There are 4052 pictures on the site just now. When viewing the pictures you can leave your own comments using the form at the foot of each page. In this way we hope to build up an extensive collection of information, reminiscences and anecdotes. There are 1826 on the site, but we still need to hear from or about you! You are also able to make your own album of the images here and make this publicly available if you wish.

Images may be downloaded from this site for personal use, and for non-commercial educational purposes such as in a classroom or teaching environment, or for private research. For any other use of images, such as in a publication or on a publicly available website, copyright clearance must be obtained. The same applies to text from the website, for instance, that uploaded to the site to explain and contextualise photographs, which comprise the personal opinions of those credited. Please contact us and we will refer you to the relevant copyright owner. We believe we have the owner's permission to publish images we know are in copyright. If you think we have inadvertently used your copyright material without permission, please contact us.

Finally, we are looking for volunteers to assist with the image gathering and uploading to this site. If you would like to assist, or else to contribute something to the project archive at Highland Archive Centre, please contact: David.Worthington@uhi.ac.uk
