Trees for Life gets rolling with vehicle appeal Thumbnail

The average lifespan of a car is around 13 years - we’ve made ours last almost twice that. Please help us to replace it before it breaks down for good.

An initiative to save ancient Scots pines across the Highlands of Scotland from becoming the last generation in a lineage of trees dating back to the last ice age.

Trees for Life: restoring the wilderness

Trees for Life is an award-winning charity working to restore Scotland's ancient Caledonian Forest. Our long-term vision is to restore natural forests and rare wildlife to a spectacular wilderness region of the Scottish Highlands, including our 10,000 acre Dundreggan Estate.

Our work is about people as much as places. Our conservation work is carried out by volunteers and funded by our members, charitable trusts, corporate supporters and people who dedicate a tree or grove.
