Plant trees at your desk...
If you would like to support our tree planting work in Ireland and Northern Ireland, you can make a business donation by clicking on the button at the bottom of the page.
We are currently co-ordinating our next tree planting day - Saturday 15th February 2020. Businesses wishing to sponsor trees for February 2020 please contact us before the end of October 2019
Notes on sponsoring trees:
A €1 / £1 donation covers the cost of planting at least one tree. Donations and sponsorship funds are used for the following:
Purchasing trees: We buy a large number and variety of trees each season for our planting projects.
Distribution & planting of trees: Our trees are planted across the 32 counties of Ireland and Northern Ireland. We distribute trees during the winter for planting in February each year.
Monitoring of trees & re-stocking: We monitor trees until they are five years old to ensure successful establishment. Any sites with significant failures are supplied with additional trees for re-stocking as needed.
Other costs: Insurance for the planting events. Packing, wrapping and labelling of trees. Office and administration.
Sponsored trees are planted at appropriate sites as small woodlands, shelter belts, coppices, hedges, wood-pasture, orchards and agroforestry projects.
Trees are planted on farms and smallholdings, at community sites, in schools and colleges, with local councils, at golf courses and sports clubs and with other landowners who look after and manage the trees as they grow.
You can choose which county your trees go to be planted when you make your donation.
We plant native Irish trees grown in Ireland. The most common species we plant are downy birch, common alder, oak (sessile & pedunculate), Scots pine, hazel, rowan, crab apple, hawthorn & blackthorn.
You can plant trees for any purpose, for example you may wish to plant a tree for every sale the business makes; for every employee or for every client. We will work with you to craft the right message for your business communications.
You'll receive a certificate of planting in February with details of the tree species, numbers and location of planting. You'll also get a copy of our logo and project summary for use on your website and other media.
You will be listed on our map of the trees as a local sponsor.
We don't guarantee that every tree will live to old age (though many will). We work to establish continuous tree cover that will be managed as a sustainable resource for many generations. Selected trees may be thinned, coppiced or felled in future years, some trees will blow down in storms, others may be attacked by pests and diseases. Trees drop seed and/or put up new growth from the roots; continuous cover management allows constant regeneration and permanent tree cover in the landscape.
You will be welcome to help out with planting your trees if you’d like to make a day of it. Trees are planted in February each year and we encourage sponsors to rally a team and join in with the planting work.
You’ll also be able to visit your trees as they grow and establish. Sponsors work teams are always welcome to come and help with maintenance work such as weeding, re-stocking and pruning in future years.
If you have any queries or would like to sponsor a large number of trees please email to us first and we can arrange to talk on the phone and go over the details before you make a donation.
