Agroforestry is being put under the spotlight at The James Hutton Institute’s research farm, Glensaugh, on Sunday, May 19, as part of this year’s Agroforestry open weekend series of events.

Scientists from the Hutton and the University of Aberdeen, who are a partner on the FARM TREE project being run at Glensaugh, will take visitors on a guided walk of established agroforestry plots at the site as well as some new recently planted plots.

Visitors will then also be shown some of the online tools being developed as part of the FARM TREE project, a UK Research and Innovation funded project aimed at helping answer the 'what, where, how and for whom' of treescape expansion.

Visitors will also be encouraged to give their views on the tools, as well as their views on the role of trees on farms and the constraints that need to be addressed.

The walk starts at 10am and is expected to take around 1.5 hours, followed by refreshments, demonstrations and discussion back at the farm offices. Attendees must book to attend the free event in advance via Eventbrite.
