Lloyds Bank Earns Some Credit

A team from Lloyds Bank – trainers based in Edinburgh – came all the way from Auld Reekie to the Fair City for fresh air and good times Oct 21st. By the way they made for a better future for the wildlife and visitors to Kinnoull Hill, Perth. The task was digging out sapling and seedling beech trees form an area of self-seeded woodland there, which has been registered as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) by Scottish Natural Heritage. Mature beech kill off all the ground vegetation under them and need to be kept in small numbers.

There were many comments along the lines of how good it was to be out in the woods on a lovely autumn day, and we went to the summit briefly to get the breathtaking views down the Tay estuary and across to the Grampians. We had a great view of a jay and glimpses of red squirrels. Have you seen these on the hill?

Over a score of groups have contributed to this over the last 9 years, removing tons of material, representing hundreds of trees and cleared regenerating beech over an acre of land. Would something similar appeal to the staff of your company? Get in touch!
