REFORESTATION

The ancient forests of Scotland have been shrinking for the last 4,000 years. First a cooler and wetter climate, then the axe, fire and livestock reduced natural forests to remnants scattered across the landscape.

Restoring woodland is central to the vision for Alladale Wilderness Reserve. Trees provide the foundation for everything - humus to enrich the soil, and a home for the fungi, plants and insects that are the building blocks of a healthy ecosystem. Between 2009 and 2012 to mitigate runoff, erosion and flooding events we planted 920,000 mixed native trees throughout the Reserve’s riparian areas.
