Wood created at Condor

CHILDREN and Royal Marines will join forces to plant 250 trees at RM Condor on Wednesday (September 12) marking the creation of a 95 acre native wood.

Carol Evans, director of Woodland Trust Scotland, Helen Oswald, Provost of Angus, and a representative from RM Condor will plant a ceremonial Rowan tree at the site of the Laurel and Globe Diamond Wood within the airfield at RM Condor.

Afterwards, a number of children from local schools will plant native trees at the site, assisted by Royal Marines.

The Globe and Laurel Diamond Wood will cover 95 acres within the home of 45 Commando and around 51,000 native trees will be planted. The wood will provide new opportunities for training exercises and support native wildlife on the base.

It is part of the Trust’s Jubilee Woods project, which aims to plant six million trees.
