FGS Target Area - Rhododendron Control

The Forestry Grant Scheme WIG Habitat & Species option provides support for capital work that will benefit a range of priority habitats and species, as defined in the Scottish Biodiversity Strategy and European Directives. The Habitat & Species option is aimed at: - improving the condition of native woodlands and restoring Plantations on Ancient Woodland Sites to native woodland - restoration or conservation of non-woodland habitats (such as lowland raised bogs and blanket bogs) that are present within the internal boundary of the woodland - species associated with woodland edge (such as the pearl-bordered fritillary) - Woodland Designed Landscapes

This dataset identifies the highest priority areas for rhododendron control as defined by the red and orange areas on the map. Applications for areas out with the red and orange areas will need to make the case for being funded (e.g. by including a letter of support from Scottish Forestry or Scottish Natural Heritage).
