Primary pupils and city workers get together to plant forest
School children and community volunteers have planted a wood alongside the existing Kinclaven Bluebell Wood.
Woodland Trust Scotland plans to plant 34,000 native trees in open fields beside the woods over the next three years. These fields were wooded until the 1940s and 50s.
School groups and staff from Nationwide and Aviva worked through the week to plant the first 2,250 saplings.
George Anderson, Woodland Trust Scotland, said: “A huge thanks to everyone who planted with us. We hope everyone comes back to see how their trees are doing in the years ahead.”
Pupils from Newhill, Burrelton, Murthly, Guildtown, Balbeggie and St Stephen’s RC Primary School in Blairgowrie took part.
