The trees planted were a mix of rowan, cherry, alder, and himalayan birch with biodegradable spirals used to protect the young trees from wildlife that feeds on young saplings.

The trees that were planted in the greenspace will encourage insects and birds to populate the area and to aid with carbon capture.

A spokesperson from the Rotary Club said: “The Club is extremely grateful to Murray Estates in Edinburgh for their kind permission to use their land for the project and to landscape architect, Susan Irwine, for her invaluable advice and assistance in the completion of the project.”
