I decided to start up Logs.scot in order to help develop a woodland my partner and I bought early in 2015. We want to try and convert the predominately commercial wood into a more mixed woodland with an emphasis on making it a very special place for both us and the wildlife. Farming has become sufficiently intensive in Perthshire to start significantly reducing natural habitat for insects and birds as well as small mammals. We are in the process of establishing wildflower meadows and a small lochan which will attract insects such as the very threatened bumble bee. We are introducing hardwood trees such as oak and beech along with species well known for attracting insects such as willow. Logs.scot was born from the need to process the windblown timber and thinnings from the wood, rather than letting it go to waste. With the growing use of woodburning stoves, open fires and biomass boilers, we hope to be able to generate income to not only pay ourselves, but invest in conservation projects within Perthshire.
If anyone has a local woodland in the Glenalmond region, then please contact us if you would like help in managing it.
