Hi Hope! Wow great question, Basically it means letting nature take care of itself because nature knows best!
There has been a lot of damage to forests and other habitats in Scotland over the years, so sometimes nature needs a helping hand.
That’s where Trees for Life step in. We think everyone can do something to help nature.
Did you know?!
Lots of the Highlands used to be covered in Caledonian pine forests, but most of it is gone. Where can all the animals go if the forest is gone?
Trees for Life are helping to bring some of it back so that people and wildlife can enjoy it.
Gosh! So how do you manage to plant all the trees?
Well firstly, we have lots of brilliant volunteers who help us to grow and plant thousands of native trees every year.

We also bring red squirrels back to parts of the Highlands they have been lost from. This will help their populations to grow and spread to other forests.
We also work with schools and communities to teach them about what we do, and how they can get involved in looking after nature.
We’re right up in the north of the UK - near this place on the map.
But if you’re not near us There are lots of other rewilding projects doing great work all across the world, maybe there’s one near you? If not, you could help to start one!
We want everyone to have clean air and water, lots of habitats to explore, and a planet full of life.
And I want that too! Thank you so much for talking to me! I've loved learning about how we can replant and rewild nature!
So, WHERE ARE THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS?
