Case Study: Dovetail Scotland
A business case study of Central Scotland Green Network woodland creation at Dovetail Scotland.
Dovetail Scotland is a family run hardwood sawmill and bespoke furniture making business with a strong commitment to environmental principles. Situated at Darach Mor, outside Fintry, owner Steve McLean purchased the 40 acre (16 hectares) site in September 2008, which included an existing four hectares ancient oak woodland, that was classified as dying with no natural regeneration taking place. In 2016 a new ten hectares productive broadleaf plantation was designed and planted by Eamonn Wall & Co utilising funding available under the Scottish Rural Development Programme (SRDP) Forestry Grant Scheme.
