We are hosting a drop-in event to discuss the proposals for Glenmore
  • Date: 10th November 2021
  • Time: 5pm until 6.30pm
  • Location: Kilmelford Village Hall

Glenmore land management plan (LMP) covers the Glenmore Farm land acquisition which was completed in 2012. It is 334 ha and lies just to the south of Kilmelford on the west coast, adjacent to the A816, in Argyll & Bute local authority. There was a previously approved LMP, however, due to changing priorities and objectives within Scottish Government and Forestry and Land Scotland (FLS), we wish to create a native forest and further protect priority habitats, removing the productive conifer aspect. The proposals will include the following species/areas, which includes both existing and planted aspects:

 

SpeciesArea (ha)
Ash 1
Aspen 1
Birch (downy/silver) 4
Goat willow 0.1
Mixed broadleaves 75
Oak (robur/petrea) 5
Rowan 0.1
Scots pine 6
Sessile oak 0.3
Priority habitat 238
Open 3
Total area (ha) 334
