Become a Friend of Dundreggan




With your support, Dundreggan will be a very different place in 50 years time. Natural woodland, with open glades intermingled with denser areas, will stretch up from the banks of the River Moriston. This diverse forest of oak, pine, aspen, hazel, juniper and birch will grade into montane scrub that will cover much of the higher slopes. Wildlife flourishing in this abundant woodland habitat will include red squirrel, capercaille, European Beaver, wild boar, osprey, badger, black grouse and wood ants. Twinflower, creeping ladies tresses and other rare woodland plants will thrive. The forests of Dundreggan will no longer be isolated, but part of a larger expanse of native woodland from Glen Affric Nature Reserve in the north to Glan Moriston, and the shores of Loch Ness in the south east.

To restore natural forest and other habitats at Dundreggan will take the hard work of our volunteers, and most critically, funding from our Friends. Each year, Trees for Life plants thousands of native trees at Dundreggan and works to restore habitats for rare and vulnerable wildlife which are a priority for conservation action. Almost all of the practical conservation work is carried out by volunteers.

To deliver this extensive programme of restoration at Dundreggan, we need to raise £100,000 each year.

Sign up as a Friend of Dundreggan now and The Audrey & JJ Martindale Foundation will match your contribution with £2,000, making your subscription worth £3,000 to us!
