Restoring the ancient Caledonian Forest Alan Watson Featherstone TEDxFindhorn

Nearly 30 years ago, Trees for Life Founder, Alan Watson-Featherstone stood in the Universal Hall and in front of 300 people made a life-long commitment to restore the ancient Caledonian Forest.

He started with no resources, no knowledge, no access to land, no funds, but his passion and inspiration have carried him forward and now Trees for Life not only helps nature to restore the Scottish Highlands – it also helps people reconnect with their spirit, with hope and with the land.

Alan’s talk also includes a wide range of his photography illustrating both the damage to the land and the difference our work makes.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
