Heatherfield and Blackcraig Wood Demonstration Event

14 June

Heatherfield and Blackcraig woodland is an ancient woodland site significant for its importance for nature conservation, and a winner of the Scottish Finest Woods Awards in 2018. Located near Cumbernauld in North Lanarkshire the woodland is a mix of hard and softwoods, has meandering paths and tracks and a pond to broaden biodiversity on a south facing open border. The woodland has an approved management plan in place and since 2009 has been lovingly and sensitively managed with clearance of windblow, replanting, grey squirrel and Roe deer control, and establishment of new tracks to aid management. The event will be a demonstration event including low impact harvesting and extraction equipment.
