Trees for Life: restoring the wilderness

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