Forestry Management Plan

Care and management of the woodlands on Rothiemurchus is guided by a comprehensive forestry plan.   A revised long-term forest plan for 2016-2035 has now been approved by Forestry Commission Scotland (with support through the Scottish Rural Development Programme).

To understand the thinking behind the forest plan it is helpful to read “The forest, its ecology and future management” by Dr Phil Ratcliffe and reproduced here from “Rothiemurchus – Nature and People on a Highland Estate 1500-2000” by T C Smout and R A Lambert (1999).

For 2016-2020 part funding for care of the native woodlands on Rothiemurchus and management for capercaillie is provided by Scottish Government and the European Union.
