The Woodland Trust

A presentation by Ian Baird of the Woodland Trust

The work of the Trust, with a focus on managing upland woodland (including the Glen Sheildaig initiative).

Based in Perth Ian has been volunteering with the Woodland Trust since January 2013 and through his many roles gained considerable knowledge and experience of the Trust’s activities and its people.

Ian initially volunteered with the Woodland Trust having been both shocked and inspired by a Woodland Trust speaker at a meeting in Perth. Ian was shocked to discover that there’s a severe lack of native trees in the UK and equally inspired by the fact that there’s an organisation dedicated to addressing the situation, namely the Woodland Trust!

Now retired, Ian’s fortunate to be able to enjoy the freedom to be involved in woodland creation and maintenance activities, volunteer speaking, and occasional ancient tree hunting in stunning locations throughout Scotland. Ian’s talk will cover many aspects of the Trusts’ activities in Scotland.
