Please come along to hear where we are with the project and we would love to get a few more people involved in helping us achieve our goal of safeguarding the woodland.

Managing the trees to rear of houses on Gillies Hill
The Cambusbarron Community Development Trust (CCDT) are currently leasing the woods to the rear of the even numbered houses on Gillies Hill. We are aware that some of these trees are very large and may cause damage if they are blown or fall over. For this reason the CCDT intend to start to manage the woodland to the rear of the houses and consider the removal of an number trees.
