Add trees to this grove

I am the least difficult of men.
All I want is boundless love.
Even trees understand me! Good heavens,
I lie under them, too, don’t I?
I’m just like a pile of leaves.

- Frank O'Hara

The surety of its hidden root
Has planted quiet in the night;
The shaking of its leafy head
Has given the waves their melody,
And made my lips and music wed,
Murmuring a wizard song for thee... Yeats

In memory of Aud the Deep Minded,
a force to be reckoned with.

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.

Scots pine against a summer blue sky.
Twinflowers in bloom on pine woodland floor.
