Phase 3 of the Peffery Project is just a small part of a larger strategic project aimed at improving in‐stream and riparian zone habitat in the Cromarty Firth Area. The MFTI is working with Cromarty Fisheries (CF) and  Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) to develop collaborative projects across the area. In September a  project began with the Forestry Commission to trial and quantitatively monitor the effects of introducing  LWD along a 2km stretch of the Strath Rannoch River. This will also to be accompanied by bank side  planting with 16,000 deciduous native trees at sites where the commercial forestry has been pulled back to  create the required buffer strip at 3 sites (Strath Rannoch, Alness Blackwater and Balnagowan) . The  Forestry Commission is supplying the trees while funding has been secured from the Nineveh Trust to fund  the planting of the trees.
