 Links & Information

Trees of Time and place is a national scheme which has been running for two years to get more trees planted by the public. It aims to break the record for tree planting in November during National Tree Week.  Five hundred planting sites have already been designated but none in the Highlands. Now area committees of Highland council are being asked to identify sites where people can plant trees.

Community Woodlands Photography Competition
Community Woodlands Association is sponsoring a Community Woodlands Photography Competition. Individual Prizes - First, second and third prizes will be awarded in each of three age groups. First prize winners in each category will have their images reproduced as one of a set of four postcards to be distributed nationwide. The judges for the age group categories will include Matthew Dalziel of the artistic partnership Dalziel + Scullion www.dalzielandscullion.com  A fourth, individual prize will be selected from all the other entries by CWA Directors. The winner in this category will also have their image reproduced as a postcard to make up the set of four. Community Woodland Prize - There is also a prize for one lucky Community Woodland member group. The prize will be a fantastic one day photography workshop with a professional photographer, for up to 10 participants. The photographer will be selected by CWA and we will also be able to offer support to arrange the event and take bookings if you would like help. All you have to do is provide the woodland venue. The winning community woodland will be chosen via a prize draw. All entries, submitted by the 1st September 2008 deadline, will go into a 'hat' and the workshop prize will be awarded to the first member woodland out the 'hat'.  Full details and entry forms at www.communitywoods.org
