Trees for life

Trees for Life has been working for over 20 years to restore the Caledonian Forest to an area of 600 sq miles in the Scottish Highlands. The Caledonian Forest once covered 99% of north Scotland, now only 1% remains of this magnificent ecosystem.

We own a 10,000 acre estate and carry out conservation and forest restoration work on this and other sites throughout the Highlands. We’ve planted over 750,000 native trees so far, and helped restore over 11,250 acres of degraded land. Over 50 Conservation Volunteer Weeks are run each year, enabling hundreds of people to get involved in positive, inspiring action that really benefits the environment.

Every £5 you give though your payroll will enable us to plant a tree and care for it until it forms part of a self sustaining forest, providing habitat for endangered species such as the pine marten, black grouse and red squirrel for generations to come.
