The forest was established in the year 2000 with primarily high yielding Sitka spruce which is now growing at up to Yield Class 34 in some compartments, according to a very recent independent crop survey. Some of the spruce was planted with a low proportion of larch which is now being suppressed and dominated by the Sitka spruce to produce a final crop in circa 10 – 15 years. Thinning could still be considered in some of the compartments or the crop simply left to mature. There are some minor areas of mixed conifer and broadleaves, adding some diversity and extensive areas of open ground that were left unplanted due to the presence of Peat which provides some excellent Roe deer stalking.
