Forestry

We manage 5,000 hectares (around 12,000 acres) of commercial forestry, mostly in Glenlivet.  

We take a long-term view and work with communities and partners to promote multi-purpose forest management.  

How we contribute 

While managing our forests, we: 

  • Invest in paths, roads and access to help people enjoy the forests under our care 

  • Increase woodland diversity through conservation and landscape projects such as peatland restoration, native broadleaf replanting and preserving habitats for native species 

  • Invite communities to help determine how forestry can work side by side with leisure (mountain bike trails, skiing, camping, bird-watching) and business activities (water bottling, biomass fuel burners and community business centres) 

  • Harvest mature timber in forests, replanting with commercial species and native Scottish trees to create mixed woodlands 

  • Offer visits and activities for school children and vocational training opportunities for older students
