Some of you may well have spoken to Gus on Scotster already - his profile is at quickfind:trees4scotland
Gus is one of the folk behind Trees4Scotland and, as many of you will know, I'm very much into the great outdoors and supporting Scotland's environment and so I was really pleased to see Gus join Scotster.
Located in Scotland's central highlands, above the village of Comrie in Perthshire, Teaghlach Wood will be planted on a 35 hectare site - with room for about 50,000 trees. All of the trees planted will be native varieties such as oak, ash, birch, rowan and willow.
The woodland will form a key role in regenerating wildlife habitats in an area already rich in biodiversity. A pair of resident and rare red kites look forward to enjoying a new nesting site in years to come!
The Gathering 2009 are supporting the fabulous Teaghlach Wood project run by Trees4Scotland - and so are we! Scotster has laid down some Scottish roots by planting trees in Teaghlach Wood and you can too. You can even get your name on their on-site honours board! Help us make a bit of history and do your bit for the environment.

I thought this was a lovely way to remember my ancestors, help the Scottish environment and remember my parents who recently passed away. They loved Scotland. When they died we planted trees in Florida for them. How fitting to do the same in the country they cared about so much.
