FORESTRY

Our woodlands extend to 1008 hectares, centred around Jedburgh. Apart from three large woodland blocks, the majority are shelterbelts and strips spread throughout the Estate, varying in size, age and species. The woodlands are multipurpose and are managed to provide timber, sporting habitats, shelter, landscape enhancement, public access, amenity and conservation habitats.

The principal tree species in the woodlands is Scots Pine, but there is also a significant area of broadleaves, especially around Monteviot House and Harestanes Countryside Visitor Centre. The woodland areas around the Waterloo Monument that towers over the Estate are said to have originally been laid out in the formation of the advancing British army at Waterloo.
