Walking and Talking trees with Andy & Debbie Duffus, Mains of Auchriachan, Tomintoul

On farm Andrew and Debbie Duffus  will introduce us to their farm and will be talking to us about their family’s new venture into woodland creation on their 1540 ha tenanted hill farm. We’ll discuss the initial thought process, the decision to plant trees, objectives, challenges and benefits to the business e.g. more shelter less feed costs and better productivity. We will also have a speaker from Scottish Forestry joining us to discuss funding and first steps to woodland creation. Please come along and bring your questions. Book your free place here. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided. Find out about the Network, its hosts and useful info here
