“It reconnected me with nature and reminded me how unimportant my daily worries are. It helped make new connections and be part of a wonderful little community for a week. My mind and body feel so much more relaxed than usual.”

Tree Nursery Weeks put you at the heart of our rewilding project, helping to grow the wild Caledonian Forest of the future.

 

Held at Dundreggan, a 10,000 acre estate that is owned by Trees for Life in Glenmoriston, near Loch Ness. The nursery is idyllically located near wildflower meadows and tranquil birch woodlands. We grow a range there of native trees for planting at our project sites, including rare species such as dwarf birch and woolly willow, and are trialling innovative ways to grow aspen, a beautiful but rare tree found in the Caledonian Forest. The varied activities include preparing and sowing seeds, potting and pricking out seedlings, helping with innovative propagation techniques, seed sorting and more.
