Trees On The Land

Trees on the Land is a cross-border initiative from the Green Economy Foundation. The project works to establish young native trees at sites across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

We run an annual tree planting event where landowners across the 32 counties turn out to plant their trees on a selected Saturday in February. We are currently co-ordinating our next planting day – Saturday 15th February 2020.

Trees on the Land provides simple schemes for landowners to access quality native tree mixes each season. We work with farmers, smallholders, community groups, councils, schools, colleges and many other landowners to coordinate sites to accommodate trees.

We plant small woodlands, coppices, orchards, hedgerows, shelter belts, agroforestry projects, reforestation sites and larger woodlands. The project has planted over a million trees since 2013.
