Field of long grass and conifer trees behind

Blairadam Forest covers 1335 hectares and is mostly comprised of fast growing conifers which provide timber to local and national markets. Over the past 20 years we have been restructuring these conifer stands in order to deliver a broader range of public benefits.

Every 10 years we look again at our land management plans and over the past year we have been preparing to renew the plan for Blairadam Forest. Community drop-in sessions were held last August and our staff received lots of constructive feedback from members of the public. This feedback has now been incorporated into the draft proposals for the next 10 years which can be accessed below. 

Current timeline for plan renewal

  • August 2023: Community drop-in sessions held
  • September 2023 - January 2024: Draft plan placed on consultation webpage, assessment by internal teams, revisions and further consultations with stakeholders
  • February 2024: Plan submitted to the forestry regulator (Scottish Forestry) for review. As part of the approval process, the plan will be placed on Scottish Forestry’s public register for 28 days for opportunity to comment.
