This report documents a Forest Research led study into attitudes towards landscape benefits and woodland creation in Southern Scotland, commissioned by Scottish Forestry in light of the Scottish Government’s tree planting targets.
Black Grouse Evaluation Report - Scottish Borders Pilot Areas 1 & 2
This report considers how forest expansion can provide both constraints and opportunities to species of conservation concern, and recognises the need to provide tools for use by those who are considering creating new woodlands and by those who assess and grant permissions for such proposals.
The aim of this landscape capacity study is to consider opportunities for newwoodlands to be accommodated in two pilot areas within the Scottish Borders aspart of the Regional Strategic Woodland Creation Project.
This document lays out the process and methodology of approach in identifying the two pilot areas in the Scottish Borders as part of the wider pilot project.
This work was commissioned as part of a wider project to develop and pilot an approach in identified areas to consider the capacity for woodland creation in the context of overall land use.
