General Description

Otter Forest was established in two stages between the spring of 2020 and April 2021 under an approved Forestry Grant Scheme (FGS) contract with commercial conifer and broadleaves with the aim of managing the conifer under a continuous cover management system.

This is intended to produce income from timber thinning operations whilst also generating tradeable Carbon Units (52,267) over the proposed life of the 100 year project. Deer fencing, ground preparation and planting with improved Sitka spruce, Douglas fir, Norway spruce and Scots pine took place on the more fertile land and both productive and native broadleaves were planted to create a highly diverse and resilient forest for the future.

Previously felled areas have been incorporated within the overall scheme. These were replanted following ground preparation and drainage and are establishing well. Two of the original shelter belts, planted in 1970, still remain and provide some diversity. These will be ready for felling shortly or could be left longer term.
