Thankfully I had the great kids from St Patricks Primary to help me on this one.
I explained the project to the kids and then we went for a dander looking for a tree suitable for a President!
I explained that it was to be about 2m high...and have a load of branches to hand paper leaves on. So we discounted Silver Birch as being too weak so we settled on this Rowan tree. (we had previously did a tree audit around the school grounds with the kids so they're more than familiar with the trees on offer!)
I hope to have a permanent home for this tree in a high profile location in the City of Culture....
(lots of fancy pictures were taken from the day...so I'll add to this as I get some more from the photgraphers on the day)
