Aspen Propagation Workshop at Shewalton

Monday 30 March 2015

Eadha delivered an aspen propagation workshop at SWT's Shewalton Wood Reserve in Irvine on Sunday and supplied 80 aspens for planting on the reserve.

Root cuttings were harvested from 6 stock trees which were laid out and buried in a raised bed. A further 7 young trees were provided for growing on as stock trees. A total of 10 clones from Southern Scotland were provided for the nursery including 2 clones from SWT reserves - Loch Libo and Feoch Meadows. It is hoped that over time the nursery will produce aspen trees on an ongoing basis for planting on its reserves.

A great team of volunteers to work with!
