The LCL connection to nature...
Since 2007, our partners Carbon Managers Ltd have worked closely with the Alladale Wilderness Reserve, a stunning natural utopia in the Scottish Highlands, home to newly planted Alder, Aspen, Rowan, Willow, Birch, but predominantly Scots Pine. Carbon Managers and their clients have contributed to the planting at Alladale and they have now passed an impressive milestone of over one million trees planted.
