Something of the history of the project can been seen in this blog, part of which is quoted below.
"In 2010 the SFMA launched an initiative to encourage both their makers and the commissioning public to become aware of the possibilities and reduced environmental impact of working with native timber on a local basis. It was entitled “Local Trees for Local Makers”.Some of you will have noticed the bold red cross and number which has been sprayed on a number of trees in the Meadows. I will post next week with an update on the position with tree removal and replacement this year.
