Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
