Timber Development Association – Ardgartan

The document is courtesy of Glenbranter Forest office staff with particular thanks to Ian Adams who has stored these old files for many years.

This is only available part of visit notes of the Timber Development Association to the Cowal area in 1959. This two page segment describes some aspects of Ardgartan Forest and its staff. The District officer is John F McGarva, the Head Forester is D J MacRae assisted by three other foresters – not named. Annual planting programme is around 350 acres and describes the reasons for close planting, the follow up brashing in later years and then thinning.

The harvesting programme was then running at 70,000 cubic feet expected to rise considerably over the following years.

See the attached PDF for all the details.

Any comments and stories from the area very welcome.
