Loch Lomond to join in record tree-planting attempt
Bookmark and Share
Scotland's contribution to this Saturday's attempt to break the record for the most trees planted in one hour will take place in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

The UK National Parks have unveiled the plans for the event, which will see five locations staging tree-planting in an attempt to increase Britain's arboreal population by 1,000.

As well as the Scottish venue, planting will be held in the Norfolk Broads, the Lake District, Pembrokeshire Coast and the Brecon Beacons.

Scots hoping to take part can do so on Saturday December 5th at Cashel Wood, between Balmaha and Rowardennan on the east side of Loch Lomond at 10:00 GMT, provided they contact the national park to pre-register.

Volunteers have been advised to bring their waterproofs and those looking for a waterproof jacket may wish to visit to Go Outdoors store in Coatbridge, near Glasgow.

Rowardennan has a hotel and youth hostel and is the usual start point for an ascent of Ben Lomond, Scotland's southernmost Munro.
