Joint rural development surveys covering 1½ million acres have been carried out since 1947 by the Forestry Commission and the Department of Agriculture for Scotland. As a result, 50,000 acres have been acquired or provisional arrangements made for acquisition. A further million acres are in course of being surveyed. In addition, over Scotland as a whole, Forestry Commission officers are continually inspecting land offered for sale, and this work is being intensified.
