TreeLink Stirling trustees are joined by Guy Harewood from Stirling Council
At its recent AGM, TreeLink Stirling elected nine trustees to carry the charity's work forward for the next year. Those elected are (from left to right) Allan Stewart, Niall Currie, Nigel Cole, Pat Morrissey, Lynda McColl, Max Hislop, Al Jump, Paul Dumbleton, and Ann White. Stirling Council's Biodiversity Officer, Guy Harewood (far left, back row) attends TreeLink meetings and joined the photocall. Pat Morrissey gave a retrospective overview of the growth and development of the TreeLink, while Paul Dumbleton presented a financial report for the past year. Members heard of the various practical projects we've developed before Max Hislop took us through the Strategic Plan for the next three years.
It's promising to be an an interesting year ahead for TreeLink as we look to the many ways in which we can continue to plant, grow and advocate for trees in the Stirling area.
Running for Trees
TreeLink Trustee Ann White has a busy month ahead - she's running in three 10k races over a period of 24 days in May!
Ann, who has a strong track record in these events, including fastest woman over seventy in the Berlin Marathon, has chosen TreeLink as her nominated charity for sponsorship.

Strategic Plan Launched
TreeLink Stirling's Strategic Plan was launched at the recent AGM in April.
The plan covers the aspirations for the charity's next three years and concisely presents TreeLink's mission 'To increase the extent, quality and connectivity of trees and woodlands across the Stirling Council area by engaging with local people and involving them in our project work, and to promote the importance of trees by acting as their advocates.'

Trees are of fundamental importance to individuals, communities and our environment and are essential for a healthy planet. They are a vital part of our biodiversity. Trees capture and store carbon dioxide from the air, improve air and water quality and can help manage flood risk.
TreeLink works to increase the number of well managed trees and woodlands across the Stirling Council area. We work closely with partners including Stirling Council and The University of Stirling as well as other environmental and community groups.
TreeLink is open to all and prides itself in its inclusive policies.
