Our Autmn Gathering on the 28th August was a huge success.
Our plans to create an almost 40km walking route taking in some of Stirling’s most iconic woodlands were unveiled.
TreeLink Stirling’s ‘Big Idea’ has been welcomed by politicians after the initiative was presented at the group’s Autumn Gathering last week to an enthusiastic response from members and volunteers.
We are now taking registrations for 2024 - please click on the button below for details.
To encourage tree planting in gardens and promote the many benefits that trees bring we’ll give you a free tree to plant in your garden to mark your baby’s birth. You can also apply if you want to celebrate an adoption or commemorate a lost baby.
Help up spread the word - download a poster and share where you can.
TreeLink had a great time on 1st October 2023 joining in the fun at Cashel Forest's Autumn Festival.
Hundreds of people descended on Cashel to enjoy many family friendly activities.
Tree Nursery Activities
Over the summer months there has been lots of action in our Nursery. Our new Trustee Alison has taken over the management of the trees and has been busy cataloguing and planning the winter activities.
Numerous volunteers have spent the third Saturday of each month looking after the beds by weeding, watering and general maintenance of the space. It's look great and the trees are thriving!
You can volunteer too - you can find out more information here.

Stirling Open Streets
Lots of new friendships were made and stories shared.
Our exhibition of current projects was well received by members of the public, many of whom stopped for a chat and expressed their concern for the region's vulnerability to climate change, and to express support for the work TreeLink is doing.
Over 100 Free Trees for Babies Distributed
TreeLink Stirling, with generous support from local firm Vivisol Home Care, distributed over a hundred free tree on Saturday 25th February. Staff from Vivisol worked alongside TreeLink volunteers to distribute the trees.
The trees were given to families to mark the birth of their child. Each tree came with a certificate signed by TreeLink chairperson, Professor Alistair Jump. The planting pack contained instructions and everything needed, except a spade.
Max Hislop, the volunteer organiser of the Free Trees For Babies added “Trees make people happy and are an important part of human culture. They connect people to nature and the changing seasons. Trees provide a sense of place and important landmarks. In many ways people are emotionally connected to trees, they get fulfilment from nurturing them and even mourn their loss.”
The project is open for applications for the next distribution, which will take place during next winter.
