Head forester retires after 35 years service
Mike Libera, the outgoing Forest Manager with Crown Estate Scotland, has spent 35 years working in the forests on the Applegirth Estate and in many other Crown Estate woodlands across the UK.
Crown Estate Scotland began fully operating on 1 April 2017. The business is tasked with managing assets on behalf of Scottish Ministers, including agricultural and forestry land, most of the seabed, around half of the foreshore and some commercial property. The organisation's Chair is Amanda Bryan and the Chief Executive is Ronnie Quinn.
The business ensures that the assets are enjoyed and developed sustainably to deliver benefits to communities and the nation, with revenue profit going to Scottish Government. Our business plan sets out our priorities and objectives for 2017/18.
