Our highland cows are working hard at the moment, grazing our fields to maximise the benefits for biodiversity. Our cows decide for themselves where to graze, thereby creating a mosaic of different vegetation heights and micro-habitats.

Lying and rolling helps increase structural diversity, which can be important for ground-nesting birds. Trampling creates areas of bare ground, producing nurseries for seedlings, and dung generates an ecosystem in its own right.

This type of low intensity conservation grazing has been shown to be critical for encouraging nature to thrive.

Tree Planting Experience

Plant a tree at Kinkell to commemorate a special occasion or wedding anniversary. 

Help support our efforts to rewild Kinkell and increase Scottish biodiversity.

Come to Kinkell and, with the help of our rewilding officer, Jenny, plant a native tree in our very special location. 

There is a fee for tree planting of £150 plus the cost of the tree itself. All proceeds go to our rewilding charity, Rewilding Kinkell, to support our work to increase biodiversity in Scotland. 

If you want to bring your own tree, we would require that it is a native tree to adhere with our rewilding principles. We would recommend planting Oak, Rowan, Silver Birch or Hawthorn trees. We can also supply the tree ourselves and can add the cost to the fee. We already have stakes and guards onsite for protecting the tree.

Please contact jenny@kinkell.com for further information and to make all the arrangements.
