Trees bloom for Remembrance Day

A PROJECT is hoping to restore Glencruitten’s Cathedral of Trees, planted to honour the fallen of the Great War.

As Remembrance Sunday approaches this weekend, one project is planning to restore the Cathedral of Trees, the only living tree cathedral in Scotland.

The Glencruitten Cathedral of Trees was planted in the 1920s by Alexander Mackay, who bought the land exactly 100 years ago in 1917. His granddaughter, the Rev Nicola Moll, who started the Cathedral of Trees Restoration Project, said Alexander wished to create a war memorial as well as rebuild life and the town after the war, modelled the layout on St Andrews Cathedral.
