Huntly Wood management consultation

by | Nov 5, 2014 | Featured Slider, News

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.

The management plan can downloaded here, and an accompanying map shows the location of each compartment in the wood.

Comments on this management plan can be made until 30 November 2014.
