First Tree Planting Day at Talla & Gameshope!

Volunteers welcome for first Tree Planting Day at Talla & Gameshope!
 A great moment in restoring the wild heart of the Border hills takes place on Saturday 30th April.

We will be planting the first trees of what will become a magnificent wooded upland landscape for future generations to treasure.

We will be planting a few hundred trees, a mixture of aspen, birch and rowan.  

 Meet at 10 AM at the Gameshope entrance to the site.  This is at the East end of Talla Reservoir, Tweedsmuir, off the A 701 between Moffat and Broughton.  We will walk about a mile up the track to the bothy, and planting will take place around that area.  Planting is expected to begin about 11 AM and finish around 3 PM, though this depends on how many people come along.  

All you need is waterproofs, wellies and a simple packed lunch. 

Parking at the site is limited so please car share if at all possible.

All Are Welcome to help us lay the foundation stones for nature to build on.
If you would like further information in advance of the event please email
