National Arbor Day, which began in the US over 100 years ago, celebrates tree preservation around the world.
This year, organisers Arboretum Inter-nationale concentrated on the National Trust for Scotland site in Perthshire.
Scottish chairman Paul Hanson said: "This unique site is home to the finest collection of big Douglas firs outside the US."
The Douglas fir was named after Perthshire environmentalist David Douglas, who was born 200 years ago.
