More than 1,000 native trees planted in Kirkcudbright

Kirkcudbright Rotary, with the help of the local community and students from Kirkcudbright Schools, planted more than 1,000 trees in the Castledykes and riverside areas of the town.


Kirkcudbright Rotary, with the help of the local community and students from Kirkcudbright Schools, planted more than 1,000 trees in the Castledykes and riverside areas of the town. 

In November 2021, Rotarians, the local community, and pupils of the Kirkcudbright Schools came together to plant the Castledykes Woodland Regeneration area. This was supported by local firms James Smith & Co and WC in Fields. Through a series of dedicated planting days, the trees have been planted with appropriate tree guards and it is hoped that this becomes a valued woodland resource on the edge of the town. The initial work to plant more than 900 trees has now been supplemented to give the figure of more than 1,000. 

This initiative by Rotary Kirkcudbright is one small part of Rotary’s widespread work in helping to create a sustainable improvement to our Environment. We are very grateful to the support provided by Galloway Glens, as well as our local Inner Wheel team.

A portion of the funding was secured through the South of Scotland Tree Planting Grant Scheme - this is just one of more than 50 grants supported by the scheme across Dumfries & Galloway, with planting taking place from Langholm to Stranraer.
