Stagecoach at Broxburn

Stagecoach at Broxburn

The new woodland at Broxburn is on a site extending to 18.64 ha and is located on the outskirts of the town. The planted area (allowing for wayleaves, existing scrub, historical monuments and designed open ground) extends to 7.25 ha. Forest Carbon worked closely with regular partners the Central Scotland Forest Trust (CSFT) in the  creation of this community access woodland.

The principle  objective of the scheme is to deliver the Central Scotland Forest Strategy of increasing woodland cover within this largely  environmentally degraded region. Additional objectives are mitigation against climate change, enhancement of biodiversity and landscape improvements. The wood extends on earlier phases of Broxburn Community Woodland.

Broxburn underwent successful re-certification under the Woodland Carbon Code in 2017.
