A Grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands
Alun Mortensen's Grove - for Alun,
Colleen and Bernadette

Alun Karl Mortensen
26th June 2018


This is a grove for Alun. He left us on the 26th June 2018 at 52.
He often told me a story about a man that wandered about planting a forest of trees. It touched him, so much.
He said he has always wanted to plant a whole forest himself. He would love this.
Help me to keep a dream alive by planting a tree in his honour.
I love to think about his spirit living here in a wild forest. Love Colleen x

Dearest Ali, you once told me when struggling to breath that oxygen was the greatest gift, well you are now gifting the planet with more trees and more oxygen, a beautiful dream becoming reality. LOVE

Thanks for preserving the trees and helping to make my sweethearts dream come true. We don't have a lot so this is a lovely way to do something he would love and keep adding each year. Colleen

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.
