Alastair Majury on Opportunity to Sponsor Trees in Dunblane

If you would like to sponsor a tree please complete the following:

In August Stirling Council felled 42 Popular Trees, the poplars were planted to commemorate the coronation in 1953 and several years ago began falling during storms, one by one, as they reached the end of their natural lives. Dunblane Environment Group volunteers, who maintain the border and beds in The Haugh for the community, recently called in Land Services to check the trees. Stirling Council’s tree surgeon then condemned all 42 as a danger to the public, and they were felled.

Stirling Council consulted with the Dunblane Development Trust, Dunblane Community Council, and myself (Cllr Alastair Majury) as to the replacements. I created and distributed a survey for people to complete.

The final result is that there will be the following:

Silver birch — 32 trees

Beech — 4 trees

Oak — 3 trees

People will also be able to sponsor a tree, as follows:

Silver Birch for approximately £75

Beech for approximately £110

Oak for approximately £140

If you have already expressed an interested in sponsoring a tree there is no need to do so again, as your details have been passed on to the relevant officer. If you would like to sponsor a tree but haven’t been in touch with either myself or directly with Stirling Council then please complete the following survey so that your details can be passed to the relevant officer.

The Dunblane Development Trust and Dunblane Community Council also need to agree but if you would like there to be a small memorial plaque at the foot of the tree please also indicate that on the survey.

If you would like to sponsor a tree please complete the following:
