226800 native trees

Last tree planted

Three years, three Compartments, today the 29th May 2013 we planted the last tree in Lochan Burn. This was the last of 226800 trees planted over the past three years at Corehead. It's been a challenging winter, there have been some interesting moments and some testing weather conditions but always lots of laughs along the way.

Huge thanks to all the team for their endeavours and commitment. We can be proud of what we have achieved together and of the lasting mark that we have left on the hills above Moffat.

The last tree planted was an Oak, the only one to be found in upper Pot Burn.  Although we have planted this above the normal altitude for Oak, we felt that this was appropriate as we are trying to push the boundaries of successful native planting. For future reference the coordinates of the last tree are NT 10446 13127.
