All at once – Forest and Land Scotland

We have a lot of work to do in Forrestry and Land Scotland. From planting and cutting down trees to rehabilitation, recreation facilities and much more. A recent trip to Loke Troll in Dumfris and Galloway shows the nature of our work, all at once.

1. Natural renewal

Our job is to plant and cultivate trees. But why was it planted when we allowed nature to do its work for us? At the point of the picture below, trees are spread out on the hillside. All of this is naturally occurring from birch and oak trees. When the seed sprouts and bears fruit, the seedlings take root. This small area expands the country’s Broadford forest and makes it a haven for a variety of wildlife. With our little help to control the deer, it must grow into a mature forest.

2. Horse knee

We realize that we cannot improve biodiversity without natural solutions. That is why we look at nature and sometimes the past to find low-impact methods to achieve our goals. In the native forests near Lock (point 2), brake needs to be reduced for new trees and plants to grow. A heavy-duty roller coaster was found to be suitable for tight and bent wood. The area is now slightly open to create various bargains below. Simple and very low impact.

3. Eagles, hawks, and giraffes

Behind the shore is a downhill hill to the Pergrin falcon. And in general, this area is home to two pairs of golden eagles in the middle of the Galloway Forest Park. In addition, we are restoring the landscapes in these sections. You will be lucky to see one of these amazing creatures at a glance, but they are doing their best to enrich our environment and their staff. During the summer, watch the eagles and watch the eagles and even listen to their cries. We are not a wildlife agency, but part of our job is to make sure there are good habitats for different Scottish wildlife.

4. Eliminate Larch

On the other side of the block is the area of ​​deciduous trees that have been cut down in the last two years. Galloway Forest Park has been hit hard by the disease. P. Ramorum. The disease kills deciduous trees and spread rapidly in southwestern Scotland. We could not cure the trees, so we fell and removed them to prevent the spread of the disease, and we used the wood for the wood. Removing the trees will prevent the formation of infected spores. The front line of this disease is now infrequent with the Lock Troll, but we can create a place to plant trees by removing dead trees. In this area, we are building native oak trees using acorns collected from mature local forests.

5. Deer and goats

Go back to the animals, and this time they are deer and goats. Deer are Scottish icons, but they are numerous. They damage millions of pounds of young forests each year and cost a lot of time to replant. Too much deer also has a negative impact on grazing. We want to grow Scottish forests to benefit from climate and biodiversity. Deer are part of the environment but we must work to protect them so that new and replanted forests can grow.

Next to them are wild goats in the Galloway Forest Park. It is a very problematic translation because many do not exist. But they can be very powerful by hitting young trees! We do our best to encourage them to reach out.

6. South Apland Road

There is a road south of Apland across from Lock. From west to east via Scotland, the road here crosses the hill to Clattergos. Although not the only way here. We have 4 marked sidewalks, three mountain bike paths, and you can start here to climb the highest hill in southern Scotland. Our guards are constantly on the lookout for our way.

Entertainment is a big part of what we do. It will be wonderful to see them visit our forests and explore the landscapes in Scotland. Being outdoors and in the woods is good for your physical and mental health. Glentrool is a great place to visit for anyone who wants to walk or drive. There is also a visitor center where you can find more information, pick up trails and enjoy food and drink.

7. Larch rebirth

The place where the amazing endurance of nature was cut off by disease is now sprouting up in a new generation. Naturally grown from seeds left on mature trees, this was not planned and raises some interesting questions. Is this new generation suffering from the same disease as its parents? Do we just eliminate them or give them a chance to grow? There are many unknowns, which is why we work with forest research to see if there is any natural defense against the disease. We work regularly with other companies in the UK to ensure that we can manage Scottish land to a high degree.

8. Citka spruce

There are also Citka Spruce stands at Lock and above. This is the main conference in Scotland, which accounts for about half of the country’s wood production. It is particularly widespread in the Dumfries and Galloway. A combination of soil, climate and salty seawater sitka. In fact, it is much better than any other coniferous tree. There are some juniper and juniper, and other species of spruce, but the citrus that grows well here are struggling with other species and growing very slowly.

The UK currently imports 80% of the wood. If we want to clean our lives of carbon dioxide and make it more sustainable, we need more wood to replace materials such as plastic, metal, and concrete. That is why we always focus on producing trees such as citric acid.

9. Renewable energy

Outside of view, however, it is one of the many wind farms on the horizon at Dumfris and Gallowai. We do not build any wind turbines but provide access to renewable energy projects for different companies and communities. The construction of these sites is very detailed and requires many years of research and planning to reach an acceptable plan that can be built in the forest.

If Scotland achieves net zero by 2045, we need more renewable energy. We can play our part in achieving this by providing our knowledge and land in specific areas.

From here, we can see a whole series of projects to manage this amazing landscape. There is much work to be done to make all of this happen, including the local planning and environmental protection team, civil engineers, supply team, deer management guards and tourist services. In addition to supporting our procurement, finance, human resources, management, digital, design and communications teams. Our company works in a variety of sectors. If you stop and look around, you will find all sorts of things.
