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.
