Ballagan burn wildlife re-tree-t update!

    We visited the Ballagan burn to inspect the trees that were planted along the burn back in December (https://semble.org/blog/creating-a-wildlife-re-tree-t-who-doesnt-like-a-tree-pun/). While some of the small trees had lost their protectors, they all seemed to be doing well and in good health.

    We had hoped to invite volunteers from the local community and some of our partner organisations out to help us finish off the rest of the planting, however due to the current lockdown our biologist, Carolyn and our assistant biologist, Fergus finished the job. Six large alder trees and several smaller trees were planted in the upper reaches of the project area, which with a little time will provide vital shade, habitat and food for fish and other local wildlife.

    We know our staff had a great time getting stuck in (and stuck in the mud a points), improving the local stream ecosystem and being outdoors. We can’t wait until we can offer opportunities like this out to the rest of the community. Fingers crossed its not too far away…. but until then, we would fully encourage a walk along the burn to see the new trees.

    We’d like to say a big thank you to Greggs Foundation and the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park for the funding which has allowed this local community project to go ahead.
