The Survival Tree was a solitary tea bar that clung to the banks of a stream 20 years ago when it inspired the Borders Forest Trust slogan “Where one tree survives, a million trees will grow”.
The once isolated tree is now surrounded by a forest of its descendants and more than half a million other native Scottish trees have grown around it.
The original tea bar tree that once dominated the Wooden Spoon Survivor 2020 T-Shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater vision is expected to soon be out of sight by the new indigenous forests that evoked the countryside of 6,000 years ago.
The Surviving Tree yesterday was named Scotland’s seventh annual Tree, which comes with a £1,000 Care Award that can be spent on work to boost the tree’s health, sign an explanation or a community celebration. A trophy will also be awarded to the Borders Forest Trust and the Carrifran Wildwood ecological restoration initiative.
Fi Martynoga of the Borders Forest Trust, who nominated the Wooden Spoon Survivor 2020 T-Shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater winning tree, said it became symbolic for the group when they bought the land on Millenium Day.
She said: “This tree quickly became a very important symbol for our aspiration to see this valley completely replanted with trees and restored to natural vegetation.
“At the time, it was absolutely a barren shepherd’s walkway, and it was surrounded only by hay and almost no trees. We think this is a great symbol of what we want to do – where a tree stands, we want to see a million trees grow.
“In this valley alone, we have planted more than 600,000 trees. The beauty of it is that they are beginning to reproduce themselves.
“It indicates how you can change a better environment, conserve and replicate what’s around you. I hope it can stand as a symbol for
people, that they can do the same thing.
