Glen Prosen forest design plan
Plan active from: 2013 – 2023
The following information relates to an existing FLS forest and not the recently acquired Glenprosen Estate. The forest covers 877 hectares of land sitting at the upper part of the glen, 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.
We're currently developing a new LMP for Angus Glens which will bring together the plans for Glen Doll, Glen Prosen, Glen Isla and Glen Markie. You can find the latest updates and how to get involved on the Angus Glens Land Management Plan consultation page.
