There will also be 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 us 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.
