Public Meeting: Tree Felling Beside the A9, Dunkeld
Forest Enterprise Scotland will be felling the area of trees between the A9 and the River Tay, just west of Dunkeld, beginning on the 30th of October. The work will take about two months. Though small, the site is complex, containing overhead and underground electric cables, an underground gas pipeline, a core path and is bounded by the River Tay (which is a Special Area of Conservation) and the A9.
Due to the type of work and the large machines required, the section of the Inver Walk passing through the site will be closed to the public. A diversion will be put in place and signed. While felling adjacent to the A9, for your safety, traffic lights will be in place on the road with delays of up to 10 minutes possible. The lights should be there for two to three weeks.
We will not be felling the line of beech trees between the path and the river. We aim to replant the cleared area with a mixture of young trees over the winter.
A drop-in meeting with FES staff to discuss our plans will be held at the Birnam Institute on Tuesday 17th October from 7.30pm until 9.00pm. All welcome.
