We are currently carrying out a Land Management Plan (LMP) revision to help us determine future management proposals for the Easter Ross area. An LMP details how we intend to manage our land over the coming 10 years and indicates our vision for the next decades and beyond. This revision covers the following forests and land managed by Forestry and Land Scotland in Easter Ross; Morangie, Strathrory, Cnoc Navie, Lamington, Leinster Park, Struie, Dounie and Morrich More. An area of approximately 6900 hectares.

Through the new plan we intend to address issues around resilience to climate change, tree health and age diversity. We furthermore want to make sure that the forests provide future economic and social benefits to the residents and visitors and that ecological value is retained and enhanced.

The plan has now been finalised and submitted to Scottish Forestry and will appear on the Scottish Forestry Public Register shortly. Questions regarding the plan are still welcome at the email address below..
