Funding for Glasgow-sized forest

Date : 5th November 2008, Source : BBC Link to News Story



A project to create the largest native broadleaf woodland in Scotland in the Trossachs has secured almost 1m from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Great Trossachs Forest scheme aims to transform an area of patchwork woodland at loch Katrine into a forest the size of Glasgow - 16,650 hectares. The plan involves planting 580 hectares of native woodland and enabling natural regeneration of a further 220 hectares.
