The Festival Woods is wild forest regeneration initiative from A Greener Festival. The Festival Woods is an opportunity for the the live industry, artists and fans to give something back to the great outdoors that we love to enjoy, to improve biodiversity, reduce risk of floods, and boost a “carbon sink” by generating forests.

Based on calculations from the Woodland Trust, 1 tonne of carbon could be sequestered for every 4 trees planted – so let’s get planting!

A festival legacy that will grow and grow. A single tree costs JUST £6 (inc VAT) or talk to us if you would like to work together and use our project as an environmental initiative – such as a voluntary donation towards the project from your event attendees.

We invite festivals, festival-goers, artists, suppliers and the whole festival community to get involved and donate trees, at £6 (inc VAT) each, to this lasting positive restoration. We hope to one day see the Festival Woods flourish to become a diverse Festival Forest, rich with biodiversity and protected wilderness. 

Visit and Volunteer 

Dundreggan has a visitor area so if you wish to see the Festival Woods you can! There is also opportunity to volunteer to go and plant trees by pre-arrangement with Trees for Life. There are also educational walks and opportunities to observe the areas wildlife.

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 fulfill the ecological functions necessary for the wellbeing of the land itself. Trees are planted in natural distribution patterns at sites that offer maximum benefits for biodiversity. 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.
