Heather's 70th birthday grove

Starting with a grove to celebrate Heather's 70th birthday and to commemorate the Downie family tramping through mud, rain, forests and rivers to find the perfect beach barbecue spot.
Hoping to make it a forest through future celebrations.

I hope the grove will attract a pine marten or two.

It is a wonderful thing to plant a forest for the future. Burns would have been delighted! With love from Hilary. "There was a time, it's nae lang syne, Ye might hae seen me in my pride, When a' my banks sae bravely saw Their woody pictures in my tide; When hanging beech and spreading elm Shaded my stream sae clear and cool: And stately oaks their twisted arms Threw broad and dark across the pool."

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.
