Orrin tree planting progress

2013-07-28 13.16.57The native trees that were planted along the banks of the Orrin this spring are growing very well.  The Rhododendron which previously covered the entire river has now been felled and any regrowth sprayed each year.  The Woodland Trust supplied native trees to replace the rhododendron, they were planted by bailiffs with the help of the Dingwall Environment Group and The Conservation Volunteers.  Further work by Fairburn Estate away from the river bank is helping to bring about a catchment scale removal of Rhododendron.
