Integrating trees on your land - Mains of Auchriachan
New host farmers - the Duffus family - share their experiences of woodland creation.
Andrew and Debbie Duffus will be talking about their family's new venture into woodland creation, on their tenanted hill farm Mains of Auchriachan, Tomintoul. We'll discuss the initial thought process, the decision to plant trees, objectives, challenges and benefits etc. Also how future plans for woodlands creation/shelter belts are evolving alongside their livestock enterprises. We will also have a speaker from Scottish Forestry joining us to discuss funding and first steps to woodland creation. As this will be a farmer-led network please come along and bring your questions and ideas to help us guide future event topics.
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 host events, providing an informative and supportive network for other farmers and crofters who are considering planting trees.
