TSB at Hawkshaw

TSB at Hawkshaw

The vision at Hawkshaw is to restore rough grazing land into native woodland, with a sensitive design allowing for integration of trees with existing peatlands, including an area of blanket bog.

The resulting suite of habitats will become an important refuge for a range of wildlife, an area of amenity for local people, and help to provide future seed sources for native woodland expansion in a denuded part of southern Scotland.

Wildlife friendly tree species like juniper, hazel and bird cherry will provide food for a wide variety of insects, birds and mammals and careful planting of birch around areas of blanket bog will lead to the formation of bog woodland, which has become a rare habitat in the UK.
