Strategic Forest Plan04/02/15
The Environment Committee will be asked to consider a plan which aims to protect Dundee’s woodlands on Monday (February 09).
The Strategic Forest Plan could be used to identify areas of improvement and get more people using their local woods.
The information in the plan was obtained through site visits, surveys and scoping reports and has been put together with the help of the Forestry Commission Scotland.
If councillors approve the plan it will then be submitted for consultation to Scottish Natural Heritage, Historic Scotland and SEPA.
Environment convener Councillor Craig Melville said: “Dundee needs a strategy like this because it is estimated that there are two million trees in the city.
“There is so much to do in our local woodlands and I would encourage people to get out and see what’s out there.
“We need to protect what we have so it remains here for generations to come.”
