Integrating trees network - Burnfoot Farm
Part of the Integrating Trees Network, Andrew Whiteford will introduce Burnfoot Farm, a 3500 acre hill beef and sheep farm, near Sanquhar.
He will talk about his family’s new venture into woodland creation and forest infrastructure, through the Forestry Grant Schemes Sheep and Trees grant. He'll discuss the initial thought process, the decision to plant trees, objectives, challenges and benefits etc.
There will also have a speaker from Scottish Forestry joining to discuss funding and first steps to woodland creation. As this is a farmer-led network please come along and bring your questions and ideas to help guide future events.
The Integrating Trees Network is a project facilitated by Scottish Forestry and Scottish Government, to promote the many benefits of integrating trees on your land. A demonstrator network of farms, crofts and estates will host events, providing an informative and supportive network for other farmers and crofters who are considering planting trees.
