When I was making this landscape I wasn’t aware of the story behind these trees which were planted here as a part of “A Tree For Every Citizen” council scheme. I learned about this rather controversial project later on from Aberdeen Voice a local citizen journalist website. They extensively covered  development of this scheme which unfortunately involved a cull of a large deer herd. Deers used to roam here and on the near by Tullos Hill, not anymore.
Aberdeen City Council officials decided to go ahead with their plans despite protests from the local residents, that’s not surprising. What struck me the most is the site they have chosen. I am not an expert on the subject and certainly not against a tree planting however I thought that a harsh conditions including strong winds, poor soil quality and very high salt content both in the soil and sea spray are at least challenging. But those factors are rather common next to the sea, which is just behind me, aren’t they?
Suzanne Kelly who is a Torry resident and writes for Aberdeen Voice commented under my Facebook post about the scheme: 
" how apt to see your photo of these trees planted in the Tullos Hill / St Fittick’s area. They’ve been up a few years, and they’re hardly prospering…"
