We planted two trees outside the main terminal at Glasgow Airport on Friday 28th October with help from MSP George Adam and children from some of our Tree Amigos primary schools. The event was to unveil a plaque celebrating Glasgow Airport’s commitment and continued support of the Tree Amigos environment programme.
