A grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands

Mike chose Trees for Life as the charity to receive donations in his memory.
He loved Scotland, its landscape and its native trees. On completing his forestry degree he spent the summer with other students surveying the surviving remnants of the ancient Caledonian pine forests. He was a wholehearted supporter of Trees for Life’s work to protect and grow the natural landscape.
