Festival Inns go green!

We were delighted to welcome Tammie and Kim from Festival Inns to our Perthshire tree planting project this week. They both got stuck in and planted a few trees within one of our regeneration areas – and the rare piece of glamour caused a bit of a stir round the district!

It is this meticulous ground preparation that contributes to the fabulous 99% survival rate of our trees.
