Project background

Glasgow City Council used a grant of £50,000 to pilot a baseline survey of trees and woodlands within the City and to purchase and develop software to manage the data collected. This has provided the necessary data to inform the future management, protection and enhancement of the city's trees and woodlands. A new city wide 'tree trail' was also created and promoted through a new leaflet, identifying Glasgow's top 60 specimen trees, as part of the Commonwealth Games Legacy.
