Sustainability

Strathmore Estates woodland was one of the first to enter the Forestry Commission approved 10 year Forest Plan in 2001. This Plan was reviewed in 2011 and updated for a further 10 year period. The Plan now places greater emphasis on continuous forest cover and requires 15% of the woodland area to be managed for conservation. All felled areas are re-stocked with a variety of hardwoods and commercial conifers.
