The Scots pine is a hugely important tree and widely regarded as a keystone species in the ecosystem as it forms the ‘backbone’ on which many other species depend. Restoring Glen Nevis & its woodland with this tree is just one of the ways we hope to enhance the Nevis landscape for future generations.

Whilst the harvesters continue to remove non-native species & our timelapse camera continues the film the process we turned our thoughts towards wildlife. More Scots Pine means lots more animals so we set the volunteers the task of building barn & tawny owl boxes.
Lewis has started to document the daily goings-on at our Glen Nevis harvesting site so we can see at a glance the great progress Forestry Commission Scotland’s harvesting team are making. We aim to completely eradicate all non-native species from this spot and fill it with Scots Pine.
Lumberjacks & lumberjills out in force this weekend in Glen Nevis to get rid of those pesky non-native Sitka Spruce trees, luckily they make very pretty Christmas trees & everyone who helped took one home.
Great progress made so far by the harvester & skyline. Compared to the photograph of the same site back in October it won’t be long before we’ve managed to clear all non-native species & begin planting, very exciting.
