Exclosure, near Dundreggan
Exclosure, near Dundreggan
Trees for Life fenced off this area near the River Moriston in 2009. Since then, they have been planting a variety of trees, including aspen, birch, rowan, oak and pine.
Most of the trees in this corner of the exclosure are still fairly small, so not very obvious amongst the bracken and long grass.

The hills in the background are Binnilidh Bheag and Binnilidh Mhr.
Dundreggan Estate :: NH3215
The Dundreggan Estate covers about 4,000 hectares on the northern side of Glen Moriston. The estate was purchased by Trees for Life in 2008, and they have been working to restore the Caledonian Forest across the area. Much of the area is currently moorland, along with a conifer plantation and some native woodland.
Several parts of the estate have now been fenced off as exclosures to reduce overgrazing by deer. These areas are now being planted with native trees, as well as allowing natural regeneration.
