"People from the eco group of Kilbarchan Church, Kilbarchan Civic Society and Kilbarchan Smile, will gather for this event.

"It is hoped that this event will encourage people locally to 'Plant some more in 24' in their own gardens. 

"The tree is provided by W.B.Smith, Kilbarchan and funded by Kilbarchan Civic Society."
