Gatehouse Bank at Hopecarton Burn

Gatehouse Bank at Hopecarton Burn

Hopecarton Burn is former upland sheep grazing land that has been planted with a mix of predominantly broadleaf woodland. 

The aim is to create a mosaic of silvicultural systems according to tree species type for sustainable timber production. Broadleaves will be under a continuous cover model where programmed thinning is applied, creating a natural, all-aged, forest; conifers will be under a fell and restock model.
