Climbing seed collecting - Aviemore - December

Recommended Posts

This will be our 4th trip from Dorset to Scotland for climbing seed collection on native Scots Pine. There will be 5 of us traveling up, renting out a small house. We will be working 10 days between 03/12 - 14/12/18. Aviemore - Dulnain Bridge.


I am keen to see if there is a local climber to boost our numbers for a bit of time. They will need to be used to experienced with  efficient access into 25m trees(throwline and SRT) and have there own kit to do this. If any one is keen or knows some one who may like this type of work then get in touch. Even if its only a few days they can help on its making connections for the future. Possibly another 2 weeks work in the new year as well.

Its a bit of both realy. Travel is covered by the mile and the money is fair. Less than a days tree work but not as much expansive kit in use. The work is good to do, each trip will yield enought seeds to make over a million trees. Its always been a good group of friends I bring up as well so thats good crack. Some times get some skiing in as well.

Do you have permission from Cairngorms National Park for this?
I can only assume the relevant permision has been granted with the land owner. The whole woodland is a registered seed stand. I am contractor who carrys out the collection and not involved in registering the stands and obtaining permision ect.

Are you strictly after local people?
In theory yes, there wont be enough room in our accommodation for others. Pop me an email with where your bassed as we cover a fair bit of ground each year.
