For the Environment
Trees and woodland are a vital part of our environment and support a wide range of plants and animals.
Our long term vision is to link up the woodland habitat across the peninsula from Loch Nevis to Loch Hourn.
Since 1999 we have planted over 600,000 trees, helping to create over
450 hectares of new woodland.
For the People
The physical and mental health benefits of being out and about in the woods are well documented. To help you explore and enjoy Knoydart's woods we have built and maintain paths & tracks, 2 mountain bike tracks, shelters, benches & sculptures in Inverie Woods. We work in partnership with the Knoydart Foundation Ranger Service who provide regular guided walks in the woods.
By making the most of our woods we can employ local people and invest money back into the woodland and local economy.
With Wood Knoydart, our trading subsidiary, we add value to our timber to produce and sell milled timber, firewood, wood products and timber buildings.
This helps our tiny community and our woodlands to be more resilient.
