Querido, era costume se dar um bouquet de flores com o número de anos de uma moça, mas você é um rapaz, assim um bouquet de árvores me parece muito melhor, e ficará lá por longos e longos anos!

Any car journey through Scotland with Rafael inevitably leads to a passionate discussion about the treeless landscape, about soil erosion, deforestation, and loss of habitat. Rafael himself comes from a country, Brazil, that has suffered drastically through loss of the Amazon rain forests, which this makes the topic even more meaningful to him. On 5th August, Rafael is going to turn 30 years old, and a grove of trees in Scotland donated by his family and friends will make the perfect birthday gift. I would therefore like to ask you to consider buying a tree for his birthday grove. A single tree is £5, and you can buy as few or as many as you wish. (This is a surprise for his birthday, so please don't mention anything about it to him!).

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.
