An outline proposal to plant new woodland on Invercauld Estate, using trees naturally occurring in Scotland was submitted for grant support in 2010. It is proposed to enclose a total area of 820 hectares (2,025 acres) of heather hill and existing Scots pine woodland within a deer fence. Approximately 40% of the area enclosed will be planted with trees, with just over 30% of the enclosed area already woodland.
This Environmental Impact Assessment identifies the main affects of creating a large area of new native woodland in this location. It also makes management recommendations to ensure that the proposals will not harm the current interests on the site.
Note: due to the large size of this report it has been split into 3 parts
Consent for the project was granted on 6 December 2012
