Scotland - Million acorns collected to expand ancient oak woods

Over a million acorns have been collected as part of a project to expand ancient oakwoods in south west Scotland. The scheme is taking place in Galloway Forest Park which is a woodland park, principally covering woodland in Dumfries and Galloway (Scottish Gaelic: Dùn Phrìs is Gall-Ghaidhealaibh). Over the next few years, Forest Enterprise Scotland will plant the acorns around Loch Trool and the Cree Valley helping to grow some 600,000 young trees. The Cree Valley Community Woodlands Trust, Borders Forest Trust and Moffat Community Woodlands all also assisted in the acorn collection with the aim to further expand native woodland across south Scotland.
