Derelict Land Restoration

Caledonian Rural provides expert advice to owners of derelict and redundant land. We specialise in the restoration of former open cast coal sites and former landfills to a forestry end-use. Not only does this contribute to the UK target of 25% woodland cover by 2030 but also our processes are designed to be financially viable and sustainable. Tailored to the individual needs of our customers and the specifics of the site, we provide clear operating plans and we carefully risk assess every project. Our attention to detail and combined experience will ensure that we can restore any disturbed land to a productive after use.


We undertake the land restoration of the following:

  • Opencast coal site restorations
  • Former sand and gravel quarries
  • Rock quarry reinstatements
  • Landfill sites
