Please help us buy a new minibus

Each year hundreds of volunteers travel into the Highland wilderness with us to plant trees and restore wildlife habitats. But our old minibus is no longer fit for use. We need to raise £18,000 to buy a new vehicle - please donate here so that we can continue to carry out our vital forest restoration work. Thank you for your support!

2015 calendar & pocket diary

Our newly designed 2015 calendar and pocket diary are now available to order. Featuring stunning photos of the trees, flowers and wildlife of the Caledonian Forest, with plenty of room to write in appointments, they're the perfect way to keep track of your daily engagements. Order yours here!

Restoring the Caledonian Forest


Trees for Life is an award-winning charity working to restore Scotland’s Caledonian Forest. Our long term vision is to restore natural forests and rare wildlife to a 1,000 square mile area west of Inverness, including our 10,000 acre Dundreggan Estate. Almost all of our conservation work is carried out by conservation volunteers, and funded by our members and people who dedicate a tree or grove. We offer an annual conservation volunteering programme in beautiful locations in the Scottish Highlands. Environmental volunteering opportunities include Conservation Weeks, also known as working holidays, and Conservation Days. Conservation volunteering is a rewarding and enjoyable way to make a positive difference. No previous skills or experience are required. Our conservation volunteers have already planted more than a million trees. Join us on a conservation week and help us plant a million more.
