Thousands of trees delivered to a forest as part of the Mail campaign to boost UK vegetation will be a lifesaver for red squirrels, experts say

  • Red squirrels and pine marten will benefit from the 20,000 new trees
  • Spruce seedlings from Norway will be planted where larches killed by fungal diseases
  • Currently, only 13% of the United Kingdom is forested, although it is expected to increase

Red squirrels and pine martens will benefit from 20,000 trees delivered to a forest by the Daily Mail’s Be A Tree Angel campaign.

Norway spruce seedlings will be added to the forest where hundreds of larches have been killed by a fungal disease.

They are being planted in Auchentorlie Forest, in central Scotland, after being donated by the Mail campaign, which together with The Tree Council urges readers to plant trees and businesses to commit money to the gardens for schools.

In Auchentorlie, Norwegian fir trees will be enjoyed by walkers, cyclists and riders and will provide wildlife habitat, including ospreys, deer, pine trees and threatened red squirrels.

Ben Quarcoo, of the Forestry and Land Scotland team in the area, said: “We are very happy to accept these trees, to increase forest cover in the Kilpatrick hills.”

Only 13 percent of the United Kingdom is forested, although this will increase after the Post campaign has seen more than 100,000 trees planted and engaged throughout the country.

Norway fir is an important refuge for red squirrels that are in decline throughout the United Kingdom, with only 30,000 in England, and feed on cones.
