On a new frontier

Something a bit different!

50 mature Larch infected with phytophthora ramorum converted in to a frontier style cabin. Built over 4 weeks during the summer this was a project that caught the imagination of all that were involved. The build team camping on site and living a lifestyle, minus chainsaws, that would not have been unrecognisable to someone living on the American frontier 200 hundred years ago.

Talla Bank

Our next planting project

Since the start of August we have be working on our next planting project. The site is on the hill above Talla reservoir and the task- plant 160000 native trees, a bit of a challange and not for the faint hearted. The slopes are about as extreme as you can get for this sort of work, the views on your way to the top make the walk from the lower slopes worth it.
