Our first partnership project, beginning in late 2019, will see the creation of around 420 hectares of additional native woodlands at Glen Garry, and the restoration of 880 hectares of peatland across Scotland. This work will create the capacity to lock up a minimum of 250,000 tonnes of carbon on Scotland's national forests and land and will make significant contributions to improving habitats and conserving biodiversity.
