The works relate to forestry operations within RSPB`s Dyke plantation and are shown on the associated maps. The work itself forms part of the 5 year `Flows to the Future` project which is being run by the Peatland Partnership.
The primary drivers of this work relate to the blocks forming part of the RSPB Forsinard Flows Nature Reserve and to the need to:
restore specific areas of open blanket bog and associated habitats from recent forestry on deep peat soils which will help government meet habitat restoration targets and deliver for Scotland`s National Peatland Plan,
protect the massive carbon store in the peat soils below the trees,
mitigate climate change and improve long term water quality,
remove damaging forest `edge effects` on birds and habitats of the adjacent EU designated Natura sites.
