Conservation and environmental projects are a key part of the Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation’s development plans, so when Moray-based Trees for Life approached us about their plan to expand the ancient Caledonian Forest, we were keen to hear more.

Trees for Life is Scotland’s leading conservation volunteering charity. The Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation was delighted to approve a funding package for them this Autumn which will see us donate £20,000 towards the renovation of a disused bothy in Glen Affric. The bothy will be used as a base by conservation volunteers who are out planing healthy, native trees in the glen – creating a forest for the future, and a home for native wildlife.
