Preparing Salix lapponum (downy willow) trees for planting at nursery yesterday. This high altitude willow species is found in small numbers in the Galloway hills.
Putting up more Nestboxes and Collecting Oak Saplings.
Putting up more nestboxes and collecting oak saplings at Caldons yesterday with the volunteers.
The saplings will be grown at our tree nursery and planted out in the Cree Valley.
Perhaps if everybody adopted our local supply strategy then the country wouldn`t have as much trouble with tree diseases brought in from abroad!
