Trees For Life is a multi-award winning conservation charity. For over 25 years, they have worked with thousands of volunteers to rescue the Caledonian Forest, and the wildlife that calls it home.
The Trees for Life vision is of a revitalised wild forest in the Scottish Highlands, providing space for wildlife to flourish and communities to thrive.
Your donation plants a tree in our Grove, which you can check out here.
Trees for Life will plant trees in the Scottish Highlands on your behalf. Your trees will be planted alongside other native trees, and in time will transform open hillsides into healthy young woodland, helping to restore the Caledonian Forest. This rich habitat will support wildlife such as red squirrel, black grouse, capercaillie, pine marten and golden eagle.
The Caledonian Forest is a rich tapestry which includes over 30 different types of trees. Your tree, will be a sapling grown from locally collected seed and will be one of a number of species we plant such as alder, aspen, birch, bird cherry, hazel, holly, rowan, Scots pine or willow. To create as natural a forest as possible, we do not label individual trees and we do not allow plaques. Trees are planted sporadically in order to mimic the natural distribution of trees.
Trees for Life vision is:
of a revitalised wild forest in the Scottish Highlands, providing space for wildlife to flourish and communities to thrive.
The Trees for Life mission
is to rewild the Scottish Highlands by enabling the restoration of the globally unique Caledonian Forest which once covered much of Scotland. Integral to our success is the involvement of people.
Our values are at the core of our mission to rewild the Scottish Highlands, informing decisions large and small from the day-to-day running of our office to major conservation projects. We have shared these values so that our supporters, volunteers and partners can gain a deeper understanding of what drives Trees for Life.
We are groundbreaking
We are an ambitious charity with a big mission. For over 25 years we have sought to bring innovation to conservation, and we continue to strive for new and ground-breaking ways to rewild the Scottish Highlands.
We are collaborative
We are an open, friendly and cooperative organisation. We welcome and encourage collaborative working with other organisations, land owners and the wider community. We believe we can always achieve more through teamwork.
We are pragmatic
We seek prudent, sustainable solutions in everything we do. We are always mindful of our duty to our supporters, our volunteers, our staff and above all to Scotland’s wild forest. Seeking a pragmatic approach safeguards our organisation and the work we undertake.
