Stirling MP’s tree-mendous forest project efforts
Stirling’s MP has planted five trees at a St Ninians park as part of a campaign to create forests across the Commonwealth.
Stephen Kerr helped to plant the trees in Thistle Park, alongside Stirling Council land services workers, as part of the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy campaign.
The campaign aims to create a network of forests across 53 countries of the Commonwealth, creating a natural habitat for woodland creatures and preserving indigenous forests.
Mr Kerr said:“This is an excellent campaign that is making a real difference in over fifty countries.
He added:“Hopefully our trees grow into something children playing in Thistle Park will be able to enjoy.
“Thank you to the Stirling Council team who identified good locations and helped with the planting.”
