If you visit Schiehallion and Strath Fionan today, you will see a mountain that’s changing.
Tree plantations of sitka spruce are being felled. Fences are being established to limit grazing of saplings. Native trees are re-emerging where they’ve previously struggled to grow.
Near to Braes of Foss Car park you will see a tiny woodland – a sea of protective tubes to help the young saplings planted by volunteers for the John Muir Trust. In the field, over 6000 native trees have been planted – from rowan and birch, to oak, Scots pine and more. These native woodlands provide a home and food for our native species and help to keep the ecosystem in balance.
Without trees, there is nowhere for the red squirrels and birds to live. Without the rodents there is less food for the birds of prey. Without trees, the land is more prone to flooding and erosion.
Our ecosystem is so special, yet so fragile. Over generations we’ve been abusing our wild spaces for profit. Now, with the help of volunteers and organisations such as JMT, they are being restored.
Instead of using and abusing nature we must cherish it. To work with it in harmony for the benefit of us all.
Artist Notes: These trees are on the side of Schiehallion and I love how they look like they’re gathered to dance. I added the birds in post-production to add movement to the scene – almost like a ceilidh for nature!
