Forestry Commission Scotland is urging people in the Borders to check out the spectacular colours of autumn and consider a national tree for Scotland.

With many woodlands starting to display a myriad of golden leaves, it’s a great time to get outdoors and enjoy the woodlands and forests in your area.

The Commission hopes that, at this time of year, people appreciate woodlands and the public will help choose a tree symbol for Scotland.

Hugh McKay, Forestry Commission Scotland’s Tourism manager in the Borders said: “Autumn is a favourite time for many people. It is a perfect time of year to get out, enjoy our woodlands and celebrate our trees.”
