Work Parties

Upper Woodburn’s woodlands are really rich in wildlife and are part of the remnants of ancient woodlands in Central Scotland. The habitat is Upland Oak Woodland, a scarce habitat for the area and so we are trying to improve the condition of the woodlands through tree planting, protecting new trees from deer browsing and taking out invasive rhododendrons.

Work-parties take place once a month and are free to take part in. Just bring work clothes, stout boots and gardening gloves if you have them. You need to register in advance – email Kat with the number of people and if any are under 18.

Depending on the time of year the work will involve removing rhododendrons, planting trees, making fences to protect trees and often big bonfires. We’ll provide all tools, instruction on how to use them and refreshments.
