Tipperary County Council are proud to support National Tree Week each year.
As part of National Tree Week the Tree Council of Ireland donates a limited number of free saplings to Tipperary County Council for distribution to schools and local community groups.
Trees are recognised as one of the essential parts of our environment for the role they play in cleaning air, preventing the build-up of greenhouse gases, providing renewable energy and materials for building, furniture and all the wooden items that form part of our everyday life, including the paper we read. Trees also play an essential role in providing habitats for thousands of plants and animals and are important for soil stabilisation. They are also a major contributor to our economy.
