*Unfortunately the Coronavirus pandemic dramatically slowed down conservation efforts and some bigger projects had to be cancelled.
2019 - 2020
*277 trees have been planted to date in the Cairngorms and in Edinburgh (including the endangered black poplar).
*One small forest has been rescued from outgrown tree protection.
*Research has been undertaken to create tree protection out of ocean recycled plastic bottles. The first prototype is already being tested at one of the planting sites.
*A small Scottish native plant nursery has been established to assist future planting projects and to cut project costs.
In October 2021 a planting project will take place in the Pentland Hills near Edinburgh.
1000 native trees will be planted (including some endangered species). A water meadow, a pond and a bluebell forest will also be created.
This project has already gained enough volunteers, but the funding still needs to be raised.
