We are currently carrying out early scoping to help us determine future management proposals for the forests and land we manage across Caithness. This revised Land Management Plan (LMP) will detail how we intend to manage the forests over the coming 10 years and will indicate our vision for the next twenty five years. The proposed LMP will be a full revision of two existing plans: Braehour LMP and East Caithness LMP, and will cover an area of approximately 8242 hectares.

Through the new plan we’ll be seeking to address issues around productive conifers, tree health, wet woodland and peatland restoration as well as making sure that the forests provide future economic and social benefit to residents and visitors.


Deadline for initial comments: 31 October 2019
Consultation on draft proposals: November 2019 to January 2020
Submission to Scottish Forestry: Spring 2020
