Tree Planting

Tree Planting by Club Members and Friends at Silverknowes Boulevard.


Rotary International President Ian Riseley has set a goal where every Rotary member should plant at least one tree each to change the environment for the better by Earth Day on 22nd April 2018.  That would be 1.2 million trees worldwide.

If all Rotary members here in Great Britain and Ireland take part, over 47,000 trees will be planted. That’s the equivalent of a forest the size of a hundred football pitches springing up!

In support of the challenge, members of the Rotary Club of Edinburgh and their friends braved a cold and windy March afternoon at the Silverknowes foreshore of Edinburgh to plant 120 deciduous trees of a variety of species.  A ‘ceremonial’ tree was planted by our Honorary Member the Rt Hon Lord Provost of Edinburgh, Cllr Frank Ross, ably helped by Club President Ian Starkey and Rtn Robin White.

In early February 2020 a small team returned to the site to plant replacement trees for those which had not survived the previous winters.
