A grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands

This is the grove of Richard Talbot, climber, mountain runner and Alpine adventurer. Passionate about the outdoors and the wild places of our planet, this represents an opportunity to do something practical to help preserve those environments for future generations.

Sorry we cant be there for your birthday, hopefully some reforestation of the landscape is a suitable alternative to climbing and beer.

Runners retreat looking a little sparse so in response to Mountaineering Scotland's apparent anti-tree comments this week I decided to purchase some native trees for your grove. Love Steph xxx

Advice from a Tree by Ilan Shamir Dear Friend, Stand Tall and Proud Sink your roots deeply into the Earth Reflect the light of a greater source Think long term Go out on a limb Remember your place among all living beings Embrace with joy the changing seasons For each yields its own abundance The Energy and Birth of Spring The Growth and Contentment of Summer The Wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter Feel the wind and the sun And delight in their presence Look up at the moon that shines down upon you And the mystery of the stars at night. Seek nourishment from the good things in life Simple pleasures Earth, fresh air, light Be content with your natural beauty Drink plenty of water Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes Be flexible Remember your roots Enjoy the view!
