New Dunes for Old Trees - Sand Dune Restoration

Thursday, January 12, 2017
Fife Coast and Countryside Trust Ranger, Ranald Strachan, welcomed twenty volunteers to a volunteer day at the West Sands, St Andrews, on Saturday 7th January. The focus of the day was to combat the effects of erosion in the linear sand dunes, which are a feature of West Sands.

A public appeal saw more than 200 Christmas trees being donated, which were then placed in a badly eroded crater in the sand dunes, by the volunteers. Fife Coast and Countryside Ranger, Ranald Strachan explained that the trees would help combat the effects of offshore wind and allow sand to be deposited amongst the trees, allowing the sand dunes to regenerate over a period of time.

Commenting on the Christmas tree recycling scheme, Ranald said: “The scheme was a huge success last year and the trees helped prevent further erosion of the craters from high winds, which are such a frequent occurrence along the Fife coastline. This is the second year of this programme, which is delivered in conjunction with the St Andrews Links Trust."
