Forestry work at Mark Hill, Kippford

Forestry and Land Scotland’s South Region team is advising members of the public of tree felling work that will take place in Mark Hill Forest, Kippford from late January onwards.

Forest roads will be prepared from January 27th onwards, with felling starting in mid-February.

The thinning work will open up to forest, letting in more light and creating more space for remaining trees and ground plants to flourish, making the woodland more attractive for wildlife, and for visitors.
