Where we are

Latest forest information

As part of ongoing management of the productive crop on site, we selectively thin out the trees to allow the best trees room to grow. Now that the crop has been established we are also removing the plastic guards. 

This work will continue over the winter months and will involve the use of chainsaws, clearing saws and hand saws. Please be aware of operational signage on site and keep dogs under close control whenever you see the signage. 



Community woodland with views over Airdrie

This is a new woodland at the heart of the local community. It's a great place for a picnic, wildlife watching or just relaxing and enjoying the views over Airdrie. Stroll, cycle or run the short network of paths to explore the network of paths.

Local primary school children helped to plant the colourful native trees, including rowan, birch and oak. They were also involved in developing the stunning Skytower sculpture with artist Rob Mulholland.
