Jobs available at Trees for Life
VOLUNTEER TREE PLANTING TEAM
Trees for Life is expanding the Long Term Volunteer Programme and is providing opportunities for enthusiastic individuals to gain experience in practical conservation work at our Dundreggan Estate as part of our tree planting team. Dundreggan is a 4000 Ha estate set in stunning scenery close to the Great Glen 35 mile SW of Inverness.
As part of a team of volunteers you will work on a range of innovative conservation projects with a focus on native woodland establishment and regeneration. Tasks will include working on our expanding tree nursery, tree planting, fertilising, felling and ring barking non-native trees. There will also be opportunities to work alongside our regular residential groups as well as other day volunteers.
We are offering placements for one to three months from March – October 2014. We will provide accommodation and a weekly food allowance along with relevant training. Volunteers will need to be fit and hardy for more extreme terrain as there are long walks to planting sites. Volunteers will be required to work for five days each week and may be asked to work at weekends.
Please return completed application forms to Kirsty Ellen at email@example.com or call or email for further details (01309 691292).
