Tree Council Initiatives

The Tree Council co-ordinates a number of national initiatives such as National Tree Week and Tetra Pak Tree Day.

We support worthwhile community projects such as Tidy Towns.

From 2019 we are also coordinating Ireland’s Tree of the Year, the Irish leg of the European Tree of the Year competition.

Tetra Pak Tree Day

Tetra Pak tree day is usually celebrated in the first week of October. Schools and families are invited to explore the wonderful world of trees.
