why does Scotland have less native forest remaining than England?

England still has quite large areas of native woodland remaining in Surrey, Essex, Devon, Cumbria and Hampshire, Scotland on the other hand only has a few areas in the Cairngorms that are genuinely forested with native trees, why is that?

    All I know is relatively few people, lairds, own most of Scotland.  Take it up with them.
