National Tree Week takes place between March 31st and April 7th 2019 and is organised by the Tree Council of Ireland, supported by Coillte.

To be part of National Tree Week, the Tree Council of Ireland invites Community groups, organisations, schools, and people everywhere to organise or participate in one or more events for the week. As well as tree planting ceremonies, the range of events can include forest and woodland walks, nature trails, workshops, woodturning displays, listening to the trees and what lives in the trees.

Talks, tree climbing, broadcasts, launches, poetry readings, exhibitions, dramas, and other similar ideas and events are all welcome. Thanks to the support of the Tree Council of Ireland, Cork County Council, through its Environmental Awareness Office and Heritage Unit, will have a number of native trees to give out to local schools, community groups, and organisations on a first come first served basis, which can be planted during local Tree Week Events.

All proposed Tree Week events can be registered on the Tree Council’s website https://treecouncil.ie/initiatives/tree-week/ and to ensure maximum exposure and promotion it is advised that event details are registered on the website as early as possible. If you or your group would like to avail of trees for planting and for any further queries contact conor.nelligan@corkcoco.ie for more details.
