A Grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands

A grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands

Aim to eventually get to 1 tree for every year of my life and, as a result, leave as an Irish man returning to his Scottish roots (Great Grand Father was Scottish) a small improvement to Scotland for future generations.

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveller, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-

I took the one less travelled by,

And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost (1874-1963)

Grove started in 2010 by good friends, Phil and Sue Townsend.

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
