Cairngorms National Park Forest Strategy

The Cairngorms National Park Forest Strategy is the key document providing strategic direction on future forest management and the restoration of woodlands in the Cairngorms National Park over the next two decades.

Consultation Period: 12 February 2018 - 23 March 2018

We consulted on the draft strategy during February and March 2018 and you can now view the Final Strategy here


The Cairngorms National Park Forest Strategy 2018 will:

  • Help to deliver the forest related elements of the Cairngorms National Park Partnership Plan
  • Encourage new woodland creation that complements other land-uses and the landscapes of the National Park
  • Identify key issues and opportunities affecting forests and woodlands in the National Park and provide policy guidance
  • Assist Forestry Commission Scotland in the appraisal of funding applications for woodland creation
  • Promote awareness of the value of encouraging more woodland creation in the National Park
