Glen Tanar Estate Forest Plan Renewal

19th March 2018

The woodlands at Glen Tanar cover 10,000 acres and are a diverse mix of conifers and broadleaves with an extensive area of Caledonian pinewood in the Glen Tanar National Nature Reserve. The woodlands form an important part of the Estate and perform a number of vital roles including economic, sporting, recreation, habitat (for species such as red squirrels, a number of important birds and rare plants) and landscape.

The woods are presently managed under an approved Long Term Forest Plan which expires in 2019. We are currently in the process of renewing this plan for the period 2019 to 2039 and we would welcome input on our management proposals from any stakeholders with an interest in how the plan is taken forward. To assist in this, we are holding a public meeting on 18th April 2018 between 6-7pm at the Coats Room, Glen Tanar and would ask anyone who would like to contribute to this to come along and join us. An outline of the plan will be available to view at the meeting along with copies of the concept maps. If you wish to view the maps and plan outline in advance of the meeting please click below:


We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
