Native Tree Planting in Glin. 🌳🌳🌳

Thursday 7th April, 11.30 am, at entrance to Knights Walk.

Glin Development and Tidy Towns in co-operation with Glin and Ballyguiltenane National schools will be involved in a Native Tree Planting Ceremony. This tree planting ceremony is to celebrate the recent National Tree Week which took place nationwide in March.

We are celebrating all things trees and ten native oaks will be planted at the site adjacent to St. Pauls, Glin, on Thursday morning next the 7th April at 11.30. A Brian Boru Oak sapling will also be planted! … ‘Mighty Oaks from little acorns grow’.

The Brian Boru tree is reputedly over 1,000 years old, was possibly planted by Brian Boru himself, it still bears fruit and thousands of its acorns have been planted throughout the country.

Catherine Fitzgerald of Glin Castle, along with some pupils from our two local schools will plant the saplings. Catherine will impart her knowledge about tree planting, tree care, and how to enjoy all aspects of our native tree species and their identification.

It will be great to see the children and the community come together to learn about the important role trees play in helping to stop climate change. Planting more trees will ensure a greener future.

Everyone is welcome to attend and we are looking forward to seeing you there.
