Native Woods Preservation Ltd is a company registered in Scotland, created for the purpose of preserving and regenerating Scottish native woodlands and their diverse habitats.
To further this objective the organisation has purchased Loch Wood in the Blackwood Estate. We consider this property ideal for our purpose since Loch Wood contains ancient woodland and was under threat by commercial development. The wood has previously been utilised for both commercial timber felling and housing development, but is now in the care and custody of Native Woods Preservation Ltd to be protected for the preservation and enjoyment of future generations. The property’s noble history and close links to Scottish aristocracy add to its attractions.
The purchase of Loch Wood has been fully loan-financed and hence the organisation has a primary obligation to repay this debt. However, on the longer term we will allocate available proceeds to maintenance and improvement of the woodland and the first priority will be to control the rhododendron growth in the woodland.
