Blackwater Tree Planting

We are working with Forestry Commission Scotland to test a new method of tree planting on a tributary of the Blackwater.  Some bankside areas are being planted using traditional staked treeguards but in other areas tree shelters are being built using felled conifers.















Felled trees are held in place by stakes to form a shelter before native alders and aspens are planted and then more conifers used to build up the walls of the shelter.  By the time the shelters have broken down the trees within them should be well established.
