A grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands

The McIvor Family visited Scotland in 2015 and fell in love with the land and people. We wish to plant a grove of trees in memory of that visit, and in the hope to return someday. Our ancestors trod the Scottish countryside and we wish to honor them, and all our current and future family members. Trees grow and communicate in amazing ways. May our small grove grow into a healthy Caledonian Forest.

Add trees to this grove

We are planting fourteen trees at this time and hope to add more in the future. We wish to help the environment and the Caledonian Forest in particular. We hope to visit the forest someday and walk among our trees. We highly recommend reading the book, "The Hidden Life of Trees." It tells of the amazing ways trees live and grow and communicate with each other.

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.
