One of our wee Scots Pine trees has been nominated for the The Woodland Trust Tree of the Year Award!
The seed was collected from gnarly ancient pines high in the glen and grown on in planting boxes around Lochaber. Local children planted the saplings back out in the glen in enclosures protecting them from grazing animals. As the trees grow, so will the children, to become future guardians of the Glen.
We are delighted that the work of the future forests project can be recognised in this way. We would like to thank all the school children and volunteers for all their hard work as well as our volunteer Alison Stewart for making the nomination.
Thanks is also given to National Lottery Heritage Fund and Liberty Aluminium, Jahama Highland Estates, who worked with us on this project.
Now that we have been nominated we need your help to win! Please visit the website and vote for our wee Scots Pine tree as Scotland’s Tree of the Year!
