Merry Christmas celebration grove

A grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands

From Friends in Brasil

This Christmas, 2008, you have planted 60 trees with the Trees for Life project. The trees are part of the restoration of the ancient Caledonian Pine Forest in Glen Affric, Scotland. The trees will help to restore the Earth and repair some of the damage inflicted by human actions.

"If you are poet you will see clearly that there is a cloud floating in this sheet of paper.Without the cloud, there will be no rain, without rain the trees cannot grow; and without trees we cannot make paper. The cloud is essential for the paper to exist. If the cloud is not here the sheet of paper cannot be here either."

Thich Nhat Hanh

Vietnamese Buddhist monk, poet and peace activist

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.
