National Tree Week 2019 runs from March 31st – 7th April 2019. 1350 trees have been distributed to Schools/Tidy Towns Groups/Development Associations by Environment Staff this week. As well as trees given out this week to groups, 150 boxes of wildflower seeds were also allocated to groups who requested same.
During National Tree Week, we are asking people to celebrate trees and forests as an integral part of their lives and their communities. We are prompting people to plant more trees and enjoy being out walking in the Woodlands and Forests.
Trees are recognised as an essential part of our living. On a local level, trees and forests are important features in our immediate surroundings. Many have fascinating historical connections and folklore associated with them. Trees are fun too providing wonderful recreational opportunities for both young and old.
One of the primary aims of National Tree Week is to highlight the importance of trees in our daily lives and in the environment and to promote increased planting, care, conservation and enjoyment of trees. By encouraging individuals, family groups, schools and local communities to organise or take part Tree Week events, we are prompting and enabling people to play their part in making a difference to our efforts to live more sustainably, bringing about a myriad of benefits.
