Allstar EcoPoint at Mains of Edinvale

The objective is to establish woodland that is able to realise the following benefits: resources (timber, non-wood products and fuel), social (recreation and sporting), ecological (water, soil, habitat protection and shelter), amenity (landscaping), biospheric benefits (climate and biodiversity protection). The planned rotation length for the conifers is 45 to 70 years (to allow for phased clear felling) after which the site will be restocked so there will be continuous carbon capture on the site. The planned rotation length of the broadleaves is indefinite; trees will be managed as continuous cover.

  • Trees planted:

  • 58,928 over 36.8 hectares
  • Predicted CO2 capture:
