Planting information

Below are some answers to some frequently asked questions about dedicated trees and groves. If you have a question that is not covered here, please feel free to call us on 01309 691292.

Which type of tree(s) will mine be?

Your tree(s) will be a species that is native to the Caledonian Forest - either Scots pine, aspen, birch, willow, alder, bird cherry or juniper. We plant a range of species at most of our planting sites, so it is not normally possible to specify which species of tree(s) you would like.

Will my trees be marked so I know which ones are mine?

Your trees are being planted as part of Trees for Life's work to restore the ancient Caledonian Forest to the Scottish Highlands. We are trying to create as natural a forest as possible, so we do not label the trees in any way.

Can I come and plant my dedicated tree(s)?

It is not possible to facilitate individuals planting their own trees, but you would be more than welcome to join one of our Conservation Weeks, which often include tree planting amongst other conservation activities.

Can I visit my tree(s)?

You are very welcome to come and visit your dedicated trees. Please view the map below and visit our Visiting Dundreggan page for details of where they will be planted.
