The Woodland Trust is consulting on its management plan for Huntly Wood near Longforgan in Perthshire.
This 34 acre mixed woodland is popular with local dog-walkers and provides a home to species including red squirrels and buzzards. It contains a scheduled ancient monument, a bell-cairn known locally as ‘Roman Knowe’.
The Woodland Trust’s plans for the management of the wood to 2019 include: The felling of a large block of plantation conifers, which will be replanted with native species including rowan, oak and birch; thinning a number of areas of woodland; and ensuring that the bell-cairn remains clear of scrub.
Comments on this management plan can be made until 30 November 2014.
