The Festival Wood is wild forest regeneration initiative from A Greener Festival. It is not an offset scheme. The Festival Woods is an opportunity for the festival community to give something back to the great outdoors that we love to enjoy. A festival legacy that will grow and grow. A Greener Festival chose to team with Trees for Life to create the Festival Wood, due to their proven and outstanding commitment to restoring, protecting and nurturing the wild forests in the Scottish Highlands. “Trees for Life’s vision is to restore a wild forest, which is there for its own sake, as a home for wildlife and to fulfil the ecological functions necessary for the well being of the land itself.”

Trees for Life’s focus is on native species grown from locally collected seed, including Scots pine, willow, rowan, birch, hazel, alder, holly, aspen and bird cherry. The Festival Woods are beginning in Dundreggan, an area of 10,000 acres of wild land near Loch Ness – and Ben, Claire and Hel went up last year and planted our first hundred trees. There are over 680 now!

They make a lovely and lasting wedding present too! We have had two wedding in the Greener Festival family this year – our Press Officer Sam got married to Helen in Cumbria two weeks ago, and our Awards Administrator Helen got married to Alan in April in sunny Milton Keynes! And for each wedding the AGF Team are donating ten trees to  lovely couples. Hooray for them – and hooray for trees!
