Castlehill and Balnacoul land management plan
Land management plans set out the purpose and management of each woodland. They are a translation of national and regional forest policies, with all the relevant rules and regulations, down to a local level.
Land management plans have a lifetime of 10 years with a mid term review at 5 years. The current Castle Hill and Balnacoul land management plan was written in 2009 and is now due to be reviewed against national and regional policies.
The Castle Hill and Balnacoul forest block lies on the edge of Mossstodloch to the west of the river Spey and close to Fochabers on the east side of the River Spey. Llanbryde lies a short distance to the west. To the north of the block lie Garmouth and Kingston on the Moray coast and to the south there is Rothes.
The primary objective for the management of Castle Hill and Balnacoul is the Production of a Sustainable Quality Crop of Timber
Consultation with other organisations and individuals runs until 31 May 2019.
