Coille Alba has been working in partnership with Forestry Commission Scotland to establish an Aspen Gene Bank near Fort Augustus.

With help from Trees for Life and Highland Aspen Group, Coille Alba has been collecting material from selected aspen clones to graft onto rootstock.

The first of these grafts will be planted out this spring, once the site has been prepared and fenced.
