Tips on growing trees from the Imrie Family of Hillhead Farm, Near Glasgow
The Imries have farmed at Hillhead for four generations. It’s a family farm with all members involved, including parents Antoinette and John and children Naomi, Matthew, Jessica, Ben, Tabitha and Keziah.
The Imries became interested in growing trees in 2019 when they took up the offer of a free Farm Woodland Assessment from Scottish Forestry. This provided them with initial designs and budget for woodland creation on an area of unproductive land.
