Hike n' Plant
passionate about reintroducing native woodland
species back into our upland landscapes. Not
only will the mountain areas of Scotland be
aesthetically improved, but upland tree
planting will act as a vital carbon sink in
our efforts to reduce climate change. These
new woodland areas will also act as vital
habitats for vulnerable upland animal and bird
species in the face of climate change.
Leader, and experienced woodsman, Clive
is offering a unique opportunity for like
minded people to hike with him into remote
upland areas of Scotland and plant native
trees. He will work in partnership with
enlightened landowners to agree locations,
species, planting specifications and after

a few trees Clive will guide you on a hike

aiming for a prominent summit. Hiking
will be strenuous with distances typically
being 6 to 10 miles over steep terrain. You
must be physically fit and wear full hiking
footwear and clothing. A packed lunch and
drinks should be brought in a day sac, which
should also contain waterproof jackets and
trousers, and gloves and hats (if not already
worn). Remember the weather in Scotland's
mountain can be 'variable'!

facts about upland management, local flora
and fauna, climate change impacts,
navigation techniques and local folklore.
