Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Glasgow's third Tiny Forest was planted on 19 October 2021 by local residents and volunteers, alongside employees of Whyte & Mackay. It is located in Maxwell Park and was funded by Whyte & Mackay, in collaboration with Glasgow City Council who provided the land. This Tiny Forest is one of four that have been specially planted in Glasgow ahead of COP26.
