Not much activity can happen during the winter at the Cathedral of Trees because of the weather conditions, apart that is from maintenance of the drains, especially after heavy rainfall. However, much has been going on all around in the woodland area. The conifers have been felled and light has now flooded into the site opening up the possibility of new growth and regeneration as well as spectacular views of Ben Cruachan and the surrounding hills.
With the drains and paths restored and shady areas brought into sunlight, we can focus this year on the replanting of the site. Replanting of the woodlands with native broad leaves is also due to happen soon – the first step on the recreation of the area as a place of rich biodiversity which can be enjoyed by present and future generations.
