Noble Friends, Especially Fellow Scots:
Work has begun to save an ancient oak and a sycamore that are the oldest
remaining trees from Birnam Wood, the forest Shakespeare mentioned in
MACBETH: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-tayside-central-36577585 .
In truth, these trees have nothing to do with the real King of Scots
named Macbeth, who was quite a different figure than the character in
the play: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macbeth,_King_of_Scotland .
Lord Mungo Napier, Whose Napier/Lennox Ancestors Came from Strathclyde
