List of failed FC areas in North Scotland
A part of the 1938 Census documents courtesy of Inverness, Ross and Skye Forest District showing failed areas in Forestry Commission forests in North Scotland Conservancy.
The five sheets in the attached PDF name the then existing Forestry Commission forests and lists the areas of new plantings to be written off in each. There are some substantial total areas in forests such as Achnashellach and Borgie underlying the pioneering venture on very poor quality ground with initially minimal cultivation. Much of this ground was replanted again with improved afforestation techniques.
Some of the comments are interesting and certainly to the point!
Any explanation of the abbreviations (cfs) and (HID) welcome.
