Tree Council Tidy Towns Competition

Tree Council Tidy Towns Competition
The TidyTowns Tree Project Award is a special competition sponsored by the Tree Council of Ireland. This award recognises the huge impact that properly positioned trees can have in a town or village and the importance of having the right tree in the right place. For example, planting a series of fast growing trees for instant effect could have long term implications for footpath or street management. It is essential, therefore, that careful thought is put into not only the planting but also the management of the trees over their life-span. This award also seeks, where appropriate, to raise awareness and promote initiatives to enhance the protection of old and established trees that are of natural, historical, cultural, botanical or landscape significance within a community. Such trees may include those listed in the Tree Council of Ireland’s Register of Heritage Trees. Consideration should be given to the planting of memorial trees to commemorate the anniversary of an event with specific resonance with the Town/Village i.e.Centenary of WW1 or the Battle of Clontarf etc. A certificate and a prize of €1,000 are awarded to the TidyTowns Committee which has demonstrated the highest tree placement and maintenance standards.
