The Mull Native Woodland Group was set up in 2018. Its members initially came from the north west of Mull in response to developments in the local woodlands. This led to a realisation that we cared about what was happening in woodland and forestry across the whole island. We welcome new members from the isles of Mull and Iona and beyond.
The name of the group was chosen in recognition of the remaining areas of biodiverse woodlands on Mull – and the role they play in encouraging wildlife.
Our aims include:
- Raising awareness of the importance of different woodland habitats
- Supporting land managers and community groups in restoration and re-establishment of native woodlands
- Looking at woodlands as potential areas for training, and for environmentally sustainable economic development
- Campaigning against the use of pesticides and herbicides and helping find alternatives
