Case Study: Why Plant Trees on Farms?

Case Study: Why Plant Trees on Farms?

A case study of Ardoch and Threepland Farms in East Renfrewshire where tree planting has been incorporated into the farms.

Iain and Marion Macdonald of Ardoch and Threepland farms (250 hectares) say they have turned their livestock farm around by planting acres of hard-to-farm land with trees. They were farming 160 beef cows and 500 sheep until 2011, when Iain had a serious back operation, and the pair decided they needed to make a change.
