New Irish trees planted

St Jarlaths College TY students plant tree


Last week was a wonderful week across Ireland as numerous initiatives were in action to promote the value of trees in the country. Green Belt were active across a number of fronts and one we were particularly proud of was the 4th year (TY) Tree Hugger project taking place in St Jarlath's College in Tuam.

Their Environmental Studies group were putting some finishing touches to their biodiversity project and planted 350 native Irish trees including Birch, Walnut, Oak and Rowan. Our forester, Mike Moroney was the man to help with getting the trees and where and how to plant them.

Well done to all involved - and remember, you need need an excuse to pant a tree.
