Woodlands and Timber

The woodlands at Dalkeith are multipurpose and are valuable in providing amenity, recreation, landscaping, livestock shelter and timber for wood processors and biomass energy.

The woodlands have been carefully managed for centuries at Dalkeith and are made up of about 70% broadleaved and 30% conifer trees. In the centre of the parkland is the Old Oakwood which is over 700 years old and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
