Seed sowing in Trooperstown tree nursery

On Saturday our volunteers joined Jeremy of the Native Woodland Trust to help with sowing seeds in their tree nursery at Trooperstown.

The seeds were sourced from the legendary St John's Wood in Roscommom, one of the last remaining primary ancient woodland sites in Ireland.

Our great group of volunteers helped with preparing the leaf-litter raised beds and sowing the seeds inside for overwintering. The seeds have a big future as the successful trees will eventually be planted out onto the Trust's nature reserve sites across the county.

We look forward to helping plant some of these trees one day in their Wicklow site!
