Rhu & Shandon Community Council

Tree Felling in Highlandman and Torr Forests

Added on 12 December 2016


This will be discussed under AOB at the meeting on Wednesday

The harvesting of timber from the woods behind Rhu will start next Autumn. The 18 year (yes year!) plan includes the removal of a large number of trees.

The Contractor, Scottish Woodland Ltd,  is eager to minimise the disruption to the Community.  However the proposed  extraction routes are down Station Road and Pier Road, so there is bound to be disruption.

We have been sent a map showing the area for the four Phases of felling  and a map showing the extraction route. See  Felling in Highlandman and Torr Forest for these maps 

They have also sent a timber management plan  which they prepared for an area in Cardross as an indication what to expect.
