- A well located forest, close to Stirling in the central belt of Scotland.
- An established forest access road leading to a significant volume of maturing Sitka spruce timber planted in 1989.
- Sporting rights included.
Kings Yett Forest is situated just a 5 mile drive south west of Stirling in the Touch Hills overlooking the Forth Valley in central Scotland. Although very central, the Touch Hills are in quite a secluded location, yet close to all types of amenities and within easy reach of Glasgow and Edinburgh. To locate the property please refer to the location and sale plans and the nearest Postcode is FK7 9QA, just east of the forest.
The forest was planted in 1989 on agricultural hill ground at an elevation of 260 – 350 metres above sea level with mainly Sitka spruce and a small proportion of Japanese larch, Lodgepole pine and mixed broadleaves. The Sitka spruce is now growing at an average Yield Class of 16 m3/Ha/Year on the upland soils and will yield a significant volume of timber for the market.
First thinning took place in 2009 with racks cut at an intensity of 2 in 8 – 10 rows which has demonstrated that the forest is wind firm and can be easily harvested, thanks to the good ground conditions. A Forest Management Plan was approved in April 2010 with further thinning operations planned and subsequently put on hold, therefore the purchaser will have the ability to update the plan with Scottish Forestry to suit their own objectives for felling.
An attractive pond is located just up the western edge of the forest which is a lovely feature and creates some wildlife habitat and diversity. Overall, the forest provides an excellent opportunity to secure a significant volume of growing timber and to benefit from its capital growth.
