The Swinnie Land Management Plan (LMP) defines the management prescription for the next ten years (2023-32), and presents the vision for the long-term management of the area.  The main management objectives in this plan focus on sustainable timber production, maintained diversification of structure and resilience to climate change.

The successful delivery of this plan will contribute to the objectives of Forestry and Land Scotland’s Corporate Plan, as well as the priorities, objectives and vision of Scotland’s Forestry Strategy. The plan has been developed in accordance with the requirements of the UK Forestry Standard (UKFS) and its supporting guidelines.  The UKFS is the benchmark for sustainable forestry practice, and the Scottish Government is committed to its use.
