Location: Dell Estate, Whitebridge, Nr Fort Augustus, IV2 6UN
This is a new native woodland comprising 131.81 ha of planted woodland (net of OG) and 68.09 ha of natural regeneration. There is a productive compartment, net planted area 69.88ha. This is 93% Sitka Spruce and will be managed on a continuous cover basis.
The project duration is 70 years.
The objectives are wild-life conservation and habitat improvement by first removing grazing livestock and deer and then planting and allowing woodland to regenerate.. The productive compartment will produce some timber but is mainly intended for wood-fuel.
Expected CO2 sequestration for the total planted area is 94697t. The scheme will provide a valuable recreational and education resource for the local community.
