Every Tree Tells a Story

Telling the stories of Glasgow’s trees

(and from other places too!)

Early Braes Park, in the East End, just a year after this new pond was built to support waterflows, wildlife and communities.

Our simple project seeks to collect, record and share stories about trees around Glasgow, and other places. Read our stories, send us yours, and keep up to date with tree news, local and global.

About Us

We are a collective project, founded in Glasgow, gathering and sharing stories about trees in word, song, image, video and more. A partnership between Strathclyde University, Glasgow City Council, and other friends, “Every Tree” supports story telling in partnership with schools, communities, artists, activists, walkers, scientists and policy makers.

The city is the leading steward of our trees, but all of us have a story to tell and a role to play in helping trees to help Glasgow. Share your tree story with us here, or on social media.
