RDC Forest Plans Edit
This dataset identifies Forest Plans approved during Rural Development Contracts –Rural Priorities 2007-2013. Forest Plans aim to deliver long-term environmental benefits through sustainable forest management and consists of a strategic plan describing the major forest operations over a 20 year period. Support was given to help prepare a Forest Plan through the SRDP's Woodland Improvement Grant (WIG) for long-term forest planning. An approved Forest Plan will give a 10 year approval for felling, thinning and will provide the means of accessing grants for restructuring felling and regeneration and other grant support. This dataset stores information on the Forest Plan boundary, the 1st and 2nd clearfell phases (1-5 years and 6-10 years) and areas managed under Low Impact Silvicultural Systems (LISS). Basic attribute information is captured during the digitising process. This is subsequently joined to more comprehensive information which is entered in an Excel spreadsheet by Scottish Forestry Conservancy staff. For more detailed information please see the metadata record on Scotland's SpatialData.gov.scot Metadata Portal.
