The River Dee Trust has pledged to plant one million native trees to help save endangered species, including our iconic wild salmon. The trees provide cooling shade against dangerously rising water temperatures, and nourish the whole ecosystem.

— Sandy Bremner, River Dee Trust

The Dee is in a race against time. Of all Scotland’s major salmon rivers, it is especially vulnerable to rising temperatures because its upper reaches are largely devoid of trees and the shade they provide. Worryingly high temperatures are already being recorded. The river’s salmon and other cold-water species are on a collision course with the impacts of climate change.

Restore & Protect

The Million Trees Project is well under way to meet that challenge. It involves the planting of willow, alder, aspen, rowan and Scots pine in some of our country’s most sensitive landscapes, under expert supervision.

This is expensive work, requiring funding from as many sources as possible to maintain momentum. If you would like to get involved, the River Dee Trust would be more than happy to explain how you could help.
