The State of Green Tree project was founded in 2019. It is a not for profit organisation that aims to restore parts of Scotland to a natural and biodiverse state. Nearly 100% of Scotland used to be covered in forest (including most of the islands). Over hundreds of years humans greatly altered the landscapes, removing billions of trees and causing dozens of species of animal to become extinct.
The project aims to:
* carry out native tree planting and woodland creation.
* create and restore other natural habitats such as meadows and ponds.
* help protect endangered plant and animal species by extending the relevant habitats and by raising awareness.
* create environmentally-friendly tree protection.
* remove forgotten tree protection from other sites (tree protection is often left on trees for too long and can ultimately kill the tree if not removed in time).
