Andrew Whiteford will introduce us to Burnfoot Farm, a 3500 acre hill beef and sheep farm near Sanquhar. He will talk about his family’s new venture into woodland creation and forest infrastructure, through the Forestry Grant Schemes Sheep and Trees grant. We’ll discuss the initial thought process, the decision to plant trees, objectives, challenges and benefits etc. We will also have a speaker from Scottish Forestry joining us to discuss funding and first steps to woodland creation. As this is a farmer-led network please come along and bring your questions and ideas to help us guide future events.
