Tyrebagger re-opens as works completed

 Tyrebagger works comlpeted

Tyrebagger woodlands have reopened to the public following the completion of tree felling work by Forestry Commission Scotland.

The woods closed early in the year so that the Commission’s team could fell trees both to thin out the crop and to open up open space within the woodland to allow young trees to regenerate.

Dan Cadle, for the Commissions team in the area, said;

“The recent works went very well and we reckon that the new woodland environment is well worth a visit.

“It’s got a more pleasant atmosphere now, and thanks to the path upgrades that we’ve also been working on over the last six weeks, it’s much easier for people to take a relaxing, refreshing walk through the wood.

"Members of the public have been very patient and we’d like to thank them for their understanding and cooperation. We’re looking forward to welcoming visitors back to Tyrebagger to see how much it has been improved.”

Tyrebagger is a small woodland on the outskirts of Aberdeen, just off the A96. It offers two short walks around a mixed woodland that boasts some of the largest trees in Aberdeen - a stand of Douglas Fir planted 100 years ago.

The area also includes links to walks on to Elrick and Brimmond Hills.
