Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Glasgow's second Tiny Forest was planted on 18 October 2021 by local residents and volunteers, alongside employees of Vaillant. It is located in Glasgow Green and was funded by Vaillant, 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.
