Message from the National Trust Rangers

Friday 2nd September 2011

The National Trust will soon be starting work to fell and thin a section of the Douglas Fir on the southern slopes of Ethy that were planted in the 1960s. This work is being done to improve the conservation value of the slopes and restore the wood pasture which used to be present on the site. A habitat which supports greater species diversity than the current conifer plantation.

Following on from the walk and talk that was held earlier we have taken on board concerns and suggestions put forward by the local community which has given us ideas as to how we will take the work forward.

Signs will be placed up near the work area with more information about the work that is going on and why, soon.

In the meantime if you have any questions please e-mail us at

We will post more information closer to the time on this site as well. Thank you for reading.
