Earlier this month at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh the American Consul, Dana Linnet & the Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and the Environment, Richard Lochhead, helped to launch Trees for 2 Nations.
This is an initiative linking a new partnership between the RGBE and the Knoxville Tennessee Botanical gardens.
The aim is to exchange knowledge and to work together to enable survival of rare trees in both countries. The consul and the minister are seen here planting a rare Arran Rowan tree. The event was also attended by an invited audience & the RBGE staff.
