Without trees we could not breathe

The Community Woodland in Leuchatsbeath, Fife, has been recently planted with 100’s of new broadleaved trees beside an old oak and beech shelter belt. To highlight the benefits of woodlands within close proximity to urban developments artworks reflect their importance.

10 wooden art features shaped in the form of oak, beech and birch leaves welcome visitors to the woodland and engage them through engraved quotes. In addition to this each leaf features the Latin and common name of the planted trees. Amongst the oak shelter belt, newly planted trees and on gates and fences oak leave shaped plaques, engraved with tree facts, catch and reflect the sun light.
These art and educational elements raise awareness for the benefits of woodlands to urban developments and for the local environment as well as the importance of trees.
