 Kettil'stoun Tree Planting

Kettilstoun Tree Planting Volunteers


With support from West Lothian Council, Burgh Beautiful volunteers put in 14 donated Sycamore trees as the first traunch of a tree planting mission. The Triangle is west of the Leisure Centre; parallel to the Union Canal approximately 200 metres east of the bridge leading up to holiday cottages. Many more trees will be added on Sunday 1st December, during National Tree Week when members of the public will be invited to join in.

 Additional Tree News

Thanks to the donation of 2 cherry trees, and with agreement from Savills, Property Managers for Stockbridge Retail Park, 2 half dead, spindly and unsightly birch trees have been replaced in the wooden planters. It is hoped that in time more aesthetic and robust trees might enhance this busy roadway and entrance into Linlithgow. Burgh Beautiful is on the case!
