National Tree Collections of Scotland (update June 2012)

Posted on

The Friends submitted a funding application to the Central Scotland Green Network/Forestry Commission Scotland to prepare a major project for the Gardens to promote the Tree Collections in the Gardens and also the wider specialised Tree Collections throughout Scotland.

We are delighted to say that we have been awarded £23,000 to develop the project to early 2013 when a major funding bid will be made.

The immediate work will include local community/special interest group  consultations on how best to provide information in an interesting and innovative way, as part of the Friends broader education role.

This represents the most extensive project that the Friends have been involved in since our inception, and we hope it will be a pointer to our further project work in the future.
