This Christmas why not give a gift that will last a lifetime but won't leave a lasting damaging effect on the environment?
Now more than ever we understand the importance of the outdoors and the joy and peace it can bring us during hard times. This holiday season you can give back to Mother Nature by setting the seed of change and planting an Irish Heritage Tree.
IrishCentral knows how important our environment is and alongside the Irish Tree Council, we run the Irish Heritage Tree Program. Together we restore native woodlands with the aim of rewilding and returning the landscape to nature, and you can be a part of this amazing project.
Planting native trees is a statement of belonging to that soil and to the ancestors who tilled it. The Irish Heritage Tree Program is determined to bring these forests back to life for the future generations of Ireland.
Your tree will be planted in our rural farmland situated near Drimoleague in the heart of West Cork, which is owned by farmer Tim Daly.
His farm is a passion project focused on nature and creativity, with rewilding and regenerating the land being of the highest priority, and is surrounded by landscapes of immense natural beauty.
We're proud to say that as of last year, our original forest in Co Tipperary has now planted 3,500 native trees. The area has ties to St. Patrick, with legend claiming that Ireland's patron saint lost his tooth in the nearby River Fadaghta, which flows through the forest.
Planting an Irish Heritage Tree is not only an act of kindness for a loved one but it can also bring you inner joy knowing that you're making a significant impact in keeping Ireland green and growing.
