The first trees at a new woodland at Arbroath's Royal Marines base have been planted.
Local school children planted the first of 50,000 trees at RM Condor on Wednesday.
It is part of a nation-wide environmental project to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
The woodland will double as a habitat for wildlife and a training ground for the marines.
Helen Oswald, Provost of Angus and a representative from RM Condor planted a ceremonial rowan tree at the site of the Laurel and Globe Diamond Wood within the airfield.
The Globe and Laurel Diamond Wood will cover 95 acres within RM Condor.
Carol Evans, of the Woodland Trust, said: "We put this wood forward at Condor because it's such a special place. In a few years time this will be a fantastic place, just trees and wildlife and a brand new training area for the marines."
