New Tree Planting

Jobs a good un! The new tree planting and the replanting of the clearfell woodland sites has now been completed. All the broadleaves have been planted in 1.2m tree shelters. These create a micro climate for the young trees and encourage rapid early growth. They also make it much easier to weed the young trees and protect them from grazing animals, such as rabbits and roe deer.

The picture is of the site below Ros Castle. Higher up the slope of Ros Castle, which is more visible, we used a slightly different tube, made with a darker mesh. These are more expensive, but less visually intrusive.

The young trees are now coming into bud burst and will hopefully soon get fully established in their new surroundings.
