Forestry Scheme, Luibeneorn

The Forestry Commission was created in 1919 following the Acland Report of 1917 which found that the UK's timber stock had been decimated by the huge demand created during World War 1 and indeed previously by the industrial revolution. The photograph records the first forestry planting of spruce in Kintail, at Luibeneorn, although Duncan Macpherson has humorously entitled it "Latest Kintail Industry. Luibeneorn spruce tree mines. 1000 plants from one peat bog"
