With Tilhill Forestry, almost 500 hectares of native trees (including 80 hectares on Rottal) are being planted to slow water run-off, already increasing numbers of Atlantic salmon and pearl mussels. Dee has also restored peatland, used an AECS planting scheme to encourage birds and created wader habitats.[/size]
