Portree set to be improved through new trees!
What: Community tree planting events
Where: LSHA, Sraid an Eorna, Embankment, Portree High school, Portree Primary School, HC One Home Farm, Care Home, Budhmor Eventide Home, West Highland College, UHI Portree SLP Project
A group of young people from Portree are set to improve their local area by planting trees and sharing the experience with all ages.
Members of Skye Youth Drop In are looking forward to putting their new saplings in the ground as part of an event they’ve organised to bring a smile to people’s faces and help with the issue of climate change.
Other people from the local area are also being invited to come along to either help with the planting, or simply support those taking part on the various days.
Lesley Hellon from the Skye Youth Drop In said: “it’s great to meet up and talk to people about how we can make a difference to our local community – including people are taking part, why the group organised the event, and what benefit it is hoped the trees will bring.”
The trees, all native broadleaved species, will grow into flourishing green areas, with lots of colour. They have been provided by the Woodland Trust, as part of its tree pack scheme, where trees are supplied for free to groups that want to improve their neighbourhood and local environment.
John Tucker, Woodland Trust Director of Woodland Creation, added: “Planting trees is a fantastic way of bringing together groups of people – particularly children - who either want to improve their local environment, learn more about wildlife or create a lasting memorial for those who have made a mark on their community.
