Tree Planting in January at ACLI

Over the past two years at the Arran Community Land Initiative we have planted thousands of native deciduous trees on the slopes, primarily Oak and Aspen plus others including Bird Cherry, Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Hazel, Goat Willow. We have another 500 to plant this winter. This will gradually create a wooded landscape on the slope and help absorb much more carbon, bind the slopes and reduce water run-off.

The tree planting day that was planned in December was called off due to bad weather, so the ACLI winter tree planting programme will now kick off on Saturday January 15th at 10am on our land above Whiting Bay – ALL welcome!

Keen to get involved?

Alternatively come along any Thursday morning at 10am to take part in Community Gardening, tree planting or general land maintenance.

We would be delighted to see you!
