Isle of Canna Feb 2013


In February we were lucky enough to be working on the beautiful Isle of Canna, off the North West coast of Scotland.

The job was for the National Trust for Scotland and we had to fell a stand of nearly 200, 80-100 year old Corsican Pines.

It was a tricky job as the trees were growing on a very steep slope that was riddled with rabbit warrens.  We needed to maintain the condition of the dry stone dyke that surrounded the stand of trees.  Also, we had to be careful not to cause too much damage to the field with vehicles and timber.

We opted for a winch system, which allowed us to fell the trees and then lift the stems, in sections over the dyke.  It was quite a slow, methodical process but we go there in the end.
