Forest Pitch was the creation of artist Craig Coulthard. A football pitch created in the middle of a forest in the Scottish Borders hosted two matches on 25 August 2012. The teams – two male and two female – were mostly made up of recent British citizens or those with Leave to Remain living in Scotland. Following the matches the pitch was replanted with trees native to southern Scotland. rankinfraser landscape architecture provided technical and design services to the creative team deliver a playable pitch, the design of associated furniture and infrastructure and specification of the subsequent woodland planting. The project was part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad and London 2012 Festival.
