The woodlanders

11th May 2001 at 01:00
Return of the Natives is a new exhibition hosted by the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in partnership with the Millennium Forest for Scotland Trust celebrating our native woodlands.

Native forests were in decline until projects such as the pound;30 million Millennium Forest for Scotland and activities such as tree planting, promoting good management techniques for woodland, involving local communities and raising awareness of woods.

Visitors to the free exhibition, which runs until July 29, can learn why native trees are important. It is open 10am-5pm Mondays-Fridays, noon-5pm Saturdays and Sundays in the Exhibition Hall adjacent to the Arid Land House, which is part of the Glasshouse Experience. See
