Mabie land management plan consultation
Mabie is one of Forestry and Land Scotland's most popular forests in south Scotland. Its walking and mountain biking trails weave through beautiful woodlands, helping to attract many visitors throughout the year. It is also home to lots of wildlife, some quite rare - such as the Pearl-bordered fritillary butterfly. It is still a 'working forest' and produces a range of timber products.
FLS have recently completed a revision of the 10 year Land Management Plan for Mabie Forest. The final documents can be viewed below. The plan has now been submitted to Scottish Forestry for regulatory approval, during which time the plan will be listed on their public register for a final consultation period.
As part of the plan revision process, a public drop-in event was held in Mabie Forest on Wednesday 27th June. Many thanks to everyone who joined us, or contributed! Your feedback helped us make important decisions about the forest, and how we will manage the land over the next 10 years.
