Scotland

Our first tree planting project took us to Scotland. We planted 29 trees.

Our first trees were planted close to home in Talla & Gameshope, Scotland. Upland sites in the Tweedsmuir Hills that covers 1,832ha of rolling hills reaching 800m Above Sea Level and features two valleys which feed the Talla Reservoir, one of the main water supplies for the city of Edinburgh. 

 

Work has begun on the restoration of lost and degraded habitats including the planting of 183,000 native trees and the restoration of 60 ha of blanket bog peatland. The tree planting will restore native woodlands to an area where deforestation occurred centuries ago. The restored woodland will provide a valuable habitat for plants, birds and animals.
