Bringing woodlands back to life
The partnership is working together to restore areas of mountain woodland, involving local school groups and volunteers in tree planting schemes on the lower slopes. Increasingly, we are working towards a collaborative deer management approach to reduce the need for fencing in the partnership area.
The Heart of Scotland Forest partners
Seven partner organisations make up the Heart of Scotland Forest Partnership: Garth Wood Wilding Project, Highland Perthshire Communities Land Trust (Dun Coillich), John Muir Trust, Dalchosnie and Kynachan Estate, Scottish Wildlife Trust, Woodland Trust Scotland and Forestry and Land Scotland.
The shared vision is for a restored, vibrant landscape that provides opportunities for wildlife to thrive, for local employment and enterprise, and for people to enjoy, access and learn.
The ambition of the Heart of Scotland Forest Partnership is both big and beautiful. You might say it’s a Schiehallion of an ambition...
