The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

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.
