One beautiful old oak tree can support 600 different species of life. Can you imagine the life sustained by the millions of trees that make up the woodland habitats that cover a quarter of our National Park?
Woodlands within the Park really are some of our most valuable habitats. Some are recognised as Sites of Special Scientific Interest and Special Areas of Conservation. That means our woodlands and the species they support are so valuable they have international significance.
The good news is that by restoring our woodlands we can create the largest native woodland in Scotland.
We’re working with land managers to manage or create woodlands, especially where these could improve links in our habitat network.
