A community group has created an online tree trail as part of a bid to encourage people to visit an Aberdeen park.
The project allows people to follow a virtual tour of trees in Victoria Park.
Spearheaded by The Friends of Victoria and Westburn Park, with help from Aberdeen City Council arboricultural officers, the interactive map gives information about 20 trees within the park.
The map allows users to click on each tree for more information on its species and a short description of how tall it is expected to grow, its heritage and latin name.
People can also find out information about the health of the different specimens in the park.
Chairman of the Friends of Victoria and Westburn Park group Peter Stephen said: “We suggested the idea to the council as a way of encouraging more people into the park, especially the younger kids.”
He added: “We wanted people to be able to see nature in a broader sense and the history behind each species.”
Councillor Jenny Laing, co-leader of Aberdeen City Council, said: “We were approached by the Friends of Victoria and Westburn Parks with the idea of creating a tree trail and felt it was a fantastic suggestion.
“The council’s specialist arboricultural officers carried out an initial survey, identified trees and plotted the trail for the Friends to take that and develop it further with the online guide that has been created.
“It’s another great example of partnership working in action and I’m sure the trail will be popular throughout the year.
“The trail picks out trees of interest and provides information and background, leading walkers through the park.
“It is among the first tree trails to be established in Aberdeen but is a concept that could be rolled out in other locations.”
