First News - - HOME NEWS -

The five con­tenders for Scot­land’s Tree of the Year awards have been an­nounced. The trees range from one planted by Mary Queen of Scots in the 1560s to the Mi­lar­rochy oak that stands on the banks of Loch Lomond (pic­tured). Carol Evans, Wood­land Trust Scot­land di­rec­tor, said: “Ev­ery­one has taken so­lace [com­fort] from the na­ture on their doorstep and it has been quite mov­ing to see so many trees that be­came places to es­cape.”
