Tree-mendous festival events taking place at Hopetoun House
Two locations in West Lothian will be joining the many others across the country that will be inviting visitors to join the Scottish Tree Festival, running from September 28 – December 1.
At Hopetoun House, rangers will be leading guided tours amongst some of the estate’s most magnificent trees.
While at New Hopetoun Gardens, visitors will be able to explore the nursery’s Fairy Gardens, created with children in mind but popular with all ages.
Joanna Macpherson, director of Scottish Tree Festival organisers - Discover Scottish Gardens - said: “The Festival allows us to celebrate the place of trees in our lives, to enjoy their beauty and to explore how we can make more of them in our own gardens."
She added: “Against the backdrop of COP26 taking place in Glasgow, trees have never been more important and Scotland not only has a unique legacy of historic trees, but through careful conservation and replanting, this country’s tree cover is increasing once again.”
