During January 2024, the WLA's carbon off-setting scheme run by Trees for Life, reached an astonishing 300 Trees! The scheme was introduced in 2021 with the objective to purchase at least 62 trees each year to help off-set an estimated 15 tonnes of carbon each year, through the WLA's locomotive operations. Thanks to everyone who has supported this scheme, especially to those who have bought a tree!
Trees for Life is a rewilding charity based in Scotland, committed to creating large-scale environmental change in the Scottish Highlands. Focused on restoring the once-extensive Caledonian forest, the charity’s vision includes the rejuvenation of entire ecosystems. Their efforts aim to foster biodiversity and encourage the natural processes that sustain life in our ancient woodlands.
