There will be a community tree-planting day this weekend at the Portlethen Community Woodland site.
Just off Downies Road in Portlethen, the event is scheduled for Saturday from 10am.
Denise Martin, who got in touch with the Mearns Leader this week to tell us about the event, said everyone was welcome.
She added: “We meet at Portlethen Church car park at about 9.45am or, if anyone wants to join us later that morning, they’re welcome to join us in the woodland site. We will have lots of container-grown trees to plant, some shrubs and some wildflowers.
“Anyone is welcome to come along - even if it’s to plant just one tree or wildflower – children accompanied by adults are particularly welcome.
“I’d also like to extend a welcome to anyone interested in attending our group’s next meeting, which will be held in Portlethen Academy on Tuesday, March 24 commencing at 6.30pm.”
