Camilty forest block lies to the south of Livingston, Harburn and the foot of the western end of the Pentland hills within the local authority of West Lothian. The site covers just over 750 hectares and is mainly comprised of commercial conifer species.

Much of this plantation was planted in the 1950s and 60s when the main objective was timber production. These objectives have changed over the years and now multifunctional forestry and land management practices are more commonplace. With this in mind, this proposed land management plan aims to strike a balance between commercial timber production, wider environmental considerations and carbon sequestration.

We are keen to know what you think of our proposals and would welcome and encourage opinions and concerns to be fed back to us using the contact details below.
