​Our Forests, Our People shows how the forestry sector works and its economic, social and environmental importance to rural communities and the UK as a whole.

Several forestry and timber businesses are featured, including the James Jones & Sons sawmill at Lockerbie where Production Manager Rob MacKenna is interviewed explaining the importance of technology in running a modern, large-scale sawmill.

The film gives a very good explanation of today's forest industry, from small hardwood sawmills to high volume operations such as James Jones at Lockerbie. The idea is to help get across the story of modern forestry, and the people working in, it to a wider audience that is perhaps unaware of what is involved in UK forestry today, and of the wider benefits the industry brings.
