Glen Prosen forest design plan
Glen Prosen Forest covers 877 hectares and is located on the south-eastern edge of the Cairngorms National Park. The forest lies in the upper part of Glen Prosen, close to where the public road terminates. There are two access points into the forest, one leading off the public road and the other by an access route at Cramie.
The majority of Glen Prosen is composed of Sitka spruce, Scots pine, larch and lodgepole pine planted between 1961 and 1970. However, there are areas of earlier planting from the 1950s which are composed mainly of Scots pine and larch.
The forest is highly productive with a low presence in the wider landscape and low levels of recreational use. There is good potential to develop riparian woodland zones and to create open space.
