The principle objective of the scheme is to deliver the Central  Scotland Forest Trust (CSFT) strategy of increasing woodland cover  within the Central Scotland belt. Additional objectives are mitigation  against climate change, biodiversity enhancement, landscape  improvements, and facilitating an educational programme.

There  are some minor watercourses running through the site and the River  Carron itself skirts its north western edge. Best practice has been  followed to ensure that these features are treated sensitively.

CSFT  is currently working on a programme of educational work with the nearby  Denny High School, and the site is being used for outdoor educational  work including tree planting events.

The woodland underwent its scheduled Woodland Carbon Code re-certification in 2017.
