Rosarie and Greenhills

Rosarie and Greenhills is located near Mulben in a rural area with a low population. The block covers 980ha with the main access from the A95 Keith to Craigellachie road.

The forest is located in an upland farming landscape, which lies to the east of the river Spey. Currently the forest is predominantly coniferous, of plantation origin, with Sitka spruce being the primary species. The new planting sites at Curlusk and Broadfield border this forest and a separate land management plan has been prepared for them. The forest is within the area of both the Drummuir and Botriphnie Community Trust and the Strathisla Community Council.

The main objectives of this plan are:-

  • The production of high quality timber
  • Expanding broadleaf resource in order to help reach the 20% national target
  • Improving functional habitat networks

This land management plan was approved in September 2015 and covers the period from 2015 to 2024.
