Glen Rosa Woodland Revival
This project has seen the creation of a 400 ha deer fenced enclosure within which hundreds of thousands of native trees have been planted by the National Trust for Scotland (NTS). This includes the endemic Arran Whitebeam, one of the rarest trees in the UK, which has been grown by local tree expert Henry Murdo as well as oaks, hazel, birch and willows, creating a naturalistic upland woodland. Eadha has supplied the NTS with samples of all the 23 aspen clones originally collected from the island from its National Aspen Clone Collection. It is very satisfying to see these trees “return home” to such an inspiring project.
