We are delighted to be partnering with conservation organisations, community groups and landowners across Wicklow to be planting hundreds of trees in 2024.
And now you can be a part of it as well!
We are offering the opportunity to purchase one of five beautiful gift certificates for a loved one to celebrate any occasion. All funds raised will be used for planting native trees and in our native tree nursery.
The certificates have been brought to life by beautiful illustrations donated to the initiative by Wicklow artist Emily Robyn Archer from her Native Circles collection (see more from Emily at nativecirclesart.ie).
Each certificate will also be personalised with a message, the recipient and the sender names and emailed to you in high res PDF for printing at home or sending virtually. Please fill in the contact form below after you complete your transaction on Paypal and allow approx. two days for your personalised certificate to be created.
Thank you for your support, we hope your loved one enjoys their gift. Why not join our volunteer list as well and during the tree planting season you can come together and plant your very own trees!
These Scots Pine have been propagated from an ancient native stand discovered in the Burren, Clare. Your donation will help return this iconic tree species, one of Ireland's only native conifer trees, to its historic range across Glendalough and the surrounding mountains.
These oak will be planted across a number of sites in the Wicklow Mountains and surrounding valleys. Oak is probably the most iconic tree to Ireland and with good reason as it supports the highest number of species with a current count of over 600!
These willow will be used in riverbank restoration projects along riparian corridors in Wicklow. Willow grows fast and thrives in damp soil which makes it perfect for river banks. It's leaves and pollen are an important food source for moths, butterflies and bees.
These rowan will be planted in woodland reserves managed by the Native Woodland Trust. Rowan is also known as mountain ash and can be found throughout uplands such as the Wicklow Mountains. It's scarlet berries feed a great variety of birds every autumn.
These hawthorn will be planted in partnership with local community groups in Wicklow to help create hedgerows. Hawthorn is considered a magical tree in Irish folklore and its rich red berries provide a great food source in winter. Hedgerows of hawthorn act as wildlife corridors.
