The Trust has been successful with a funding application to the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park Natural Heritage Grant Scheme for our new Stroneslaney farm riparian tree planting project.
The project will plant 500 trees in small enclosures along the river Balvaig near Balquhidder to help boost riparian tree planting in the catchment. As this field is used to hold livestock, enhanced fencing enclosures to provide the trees protection will be created by using fence posts and wire mesh. Small triangle pods will be created holding between 4 and 5 trees along with individual enclosures for individual trees.
The Trust is looking for help creating these small enclosures and planting the trees and has planned three volunteer events for people to get involved.
27th February 10am – 3pm
1st March – 10am – 3pm
2nd March 10am – 3pm
