Fonab forest covers an area of 807 ha and was originally planted between the mid 1950s and mid 1960s, predominantly with Scots pine and spruce. The forest forms part of the south western aspect to the town of Pitlochry together with neighbouring woodlands owned by Atholl and Pitlochry Estates.  The forest straddles the ridge plateau between Strathtay and Strathtummel.

Grandtully forest covers an area of 632 ha. The upper open hill was planted between 1981 and 1983, predominantly with Sitka spruce, but the existing semi-natural birch woodland on the lower slopes, most visible from Strathtay and the A827, was retained.

Both forests are key sites for timber production, although the plantation crops in Grandtully have yet to reach full maturity. They are also important sites from an ecological perspective and contain a number of significant heritage sites.
