Gartarry Wood extends to approximately 11.12 hectares (ha), comprising predominantly mature Scots pine and Norway spruce. The Property offers a rare opportunity to acquire an attractive, well located and compact commercial woodland with high amenity appeal.
Location and Directions
Travelling from the south, leave the M9 at Junction 7 taking the M876 signposted for the Kincardine Bridge/Clackmannanshire Bridge continuing on to the A876 bearing left at the roundabout onto the Clackmannanshire Bridge. Follow the A977 north at the next two roundabouts and the Property is located on the right after approximately 0.4 miles (Grid Reference NS 934 915). Travelling from the north on the M90, take Junction 6 and follow the A977. The Property is located on the left approximately two miles south of the village of Forestmill.
Access is taken directly from A977, with a wide bellmouth suitable for timber haulage to major regional timber markets in central Scotland. Visitors inspecting the property should park here and take access on foot beyond the metal gate. Internally the woodland benefits from a short, proven forest road running through the centre of the Property.
Ranging from 35m to 60m above sea level, Gartarry Wood is a low-lying property surrounded by arable farmland and this productivity is reflected in the woodland. The majority of the 11.12 ha was planted in 1941 with Scots pine extending to 4.58 ha (41%) and Norway spruce extending to 2.44 ha (22%). Good access and the internal forest road have allowed Gartarry Wood to be regularly managed to a high standard, with mature stands of well-thinned crops, resulting in crops of generally good form, and flexibility for future managements. Management has included small areas of group shelterwood felling and replanting undertaken with a mixture of Norway spruce and Douglas fir adding age and species diversity as well as interest to the woodland. The appeal of the woodland is enhanced with areas of native broadleaves and open ground rounding-off what is a very attractive small woodland.
A sub-compartment map is available on request from the sales agent along with a compartment schedule detailing species, areas and planting years.
