Tree Planting on Isle martin
Last week we held a tree planting session on Isle Martin. 1000 trees were taken by boat to our beautiful community island and planted by volunteers from John Muir Trust and the local community. It was a fantastic day with brilliant weather, all be it too hot!
A mixture of native trees from locally sourced seed at Little Assynt Tree Nursery including Eared Willow, Hazel, Birch, Scot’s pine, Dog Rose, Oak, Juniper and Aspen were planted to create a new woodland. the terrain was hard work and the weather didn’t make it any easier, but all the trees were planted at their new home and the experience was enjoyed by all. Especially when ice creams were bought out at lunchtime by an Isle Martin volunteer to cool everyone off!
A big thank you goes out to all those who helped on the day, the John Muir Trust volunteers and the Isle Martin Trust and volunteers. Trees were provided through the Woodland Project managed by the Woodland Trust Scotland.
Don’t worry if you couldn’t make it this time, there will be more opportunities coming up for tree planting volunteers and other volunteer events. All will be posted on our website or please email Vickii at firstname.lastname@example.org to add your name to the volunteer mailing list to be notified directly when future volunteer opportunities are available.
