Ecological solutions for the forestry industry
Solway Ecology has carried out a number of projects within the forestry sector including ecological assessments for the high profile holiday lodge and tourism infrastructure development at Forestry Commission Scotland’s Glentress site, near Peebles in the Scottish Borders.

Protected species are not only likely to be resident within commercial forest plantations, but sometimes, they can be found in abundance. This is especially so in Scotland where forests experience low-levels of disturbance from people, especially away from forest trails. Being large and remote, forest sites present their own challenges requiring the use of high-spec GPS equipment. Furthermore, workable light beneath the forest canopy in the winter months can be as little as 5 hours.

Solway Ecology offers a full range of ecological and ornithological services related to all types of residential development, from single dwellings to entire housing estates.

Our services will support you in the planning application process and ensure that the construction phase is legally compliant. We can also ensure that any post-construction monitoring requirements are successfully met.
