Kergord includes the oldest and largest group of woodlands in Shetland, first planted in the early 20th Century. The area certainly has Shetland’s tallest trees, with Sitka spruce approximately 20m tall; there are many mature Japanese larch, sycamore, some Noble fir, Wych elm, ash, whitebeam and Horse chestnut. Recent additions include birch, rowan and alder, and specimens of oak, Southern beech, Japanese cedar, and Oriental rowans and maple.
