Schools and Groups

Looking for trees?
If you are looking for support in adding some trees to your playground or local green spaces TreeLink may be able to help.  We have a tree nursery situated in Braehead Community Garden where we grow trees and The Conservation Volunteers offer great advice on planting, seed collection and nurturing. The organisations below can also help.

Crown of Trees Events
There are over twenty schools and nurseries along the Crown of Trees and there may be events in the future suitable for your group. If you would like to be kept informed please let us know.  


Climate Ambassadors
To support any person looking to become a Climate Ambassador we would encourage them to complete a volunteer request form and become a TreeLink volunteer
*.  This will give them access to the events that suit them and TreeLink would then support any paperwork requirements for the achievement. *The volunteer age is 16 and above without an adult

Guest Speakers/ Curriculum Support
If your group is looking for guest speakers or curriculum support regarding trees and their benefits there are a number of fantastic organisations that may be able to help.  You can find a handy list below.
