Rural Development Initiatives have organised the award winning Forestry Area at the Turriff Show for the past 4 years. The 2010 stand is a partnership between Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS), Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and Scottish Government Rural Payments and Inspectorate Directive (SGRPID), who are collectively known as SEARS (Scotland’s Environmental and Rural Services).
