A programme of commemorative tree planting has been completed in Roslin Glen.
Seventy silver birch trees have been planted in the Glen, in an area owned by Rosslyn Chapel Trust, as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy project, a unique tree planting initiative created to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The trees were planted by local volunteers Eric Greenhill and Anne Hyatt and Ian Gardner, Director of Rosslyn Chapel Trust. He said: ‘ The Queen’s Green Canopy is a very innovative way to mark the historic occasion of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and the Trust has been delighted to support it, while enhancing this part of Roslin Glen at the same time. Silver birch trees are very striking and very attractive for wildlife, providing food and habitat for numerous insects, fungi and birds and so I hope that our 70 trees, marking the Queen’s 70-year reign, will add to the beauty of the Glen and be appreciated for years to come.’
