To celebrate the 50th anniversary of our marriage
Margaret E. Hunter and James S. Munro grove

We would like to call 'our' grove of trees 'Auld Alliance' for several reasons:

We are having the trees planted to celebrate our fifty years of marriage, so at the personal level ours is an 'auld alliance.' (Appropriately, one of the meanings of the word 'alliance' in French is 'wedding ring.')

As Scots involved in the teaching of French, we have reflected, in our professional lives, the Franco-Scottish link which was the purpose of the historical 'Auld Alliance'

While the name 'Auld Alliance' looks back to our own and Scotland's past, it gives us great pleasure to look forward to the trees themselves being part of Scotland's future for a long time to come.

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.
