School pupils from four Edinburgh schools are to plant the trees
Edinburgh Airport has donated £10,000 to a project which will see school pupils plant 500 trees and learn about offsetting their carbon footprints.
The airport is supporting Trees4Scotland and its Tree Amigos environment project with children from four primary schools in the capital.
Cramond, Kirkliston, Clermiston and Gylemuir primary schools will learn how trees can help protect the environment.
The children will plant the trees in Teaghlach Wood in Perthshire.
Neil Anderson, commercial director of BAA Edinburgh, said: "It's a great example of how we can all play a part, however small, in safeguarding the natural environment.
"Edinburgh Airport is committed to playing its part in addressing climate change, both locally and at an industry level.
"For example, our new £40m departure lounge extension will promote the use of energy efficient lights, and every effort will be made to reduce energy and water use, minimise waste and promote recycling."
