The Vaaish

The Vaaish plantation overlooks Glen Helen in the Isle of Man and was first planted in 1935

The Vaaish is a small but prominent plantation of 17 hectares on a very steep bank overlooking Glen Helen.  Approximately 2 hectares are unplantable and the rest has many timber extraction problems. It was first planted in 1935 and then again in 1965 with 2.8 hectares being restocked in 1988.  The main species in this plantation are Japanese Larch, Scots Pine, Lodgepole Pine and Corsican Pine.
