LIMERICK LEADER: Then & Now: Tree week is ‘planting for our planet’ (04/05/2019)

NATIONAL TREE week commenced on Sunday last and will run until next Sunday, April 7. The week-long celebration is about communities coming together to celebrate trees. This year's theme is about planting for our planet.

Trees play a significant role in our climate change strategy by soaking up carbon emissions and in the sustainable wood resource they provide. Trees improve air quality, provide shade that makes streets cooler in the summer, increase biodiversity, provide food and shelter for wildlife, reduce local wind speeds and reduce the effects of flash flooding.

Without trees, life on earth would be unbearable. The Tree Council of Ireland are inviting people to get involved in local activities with events around the country including tree planting ceremonies, forest and woodland walks, workshops, woodturning displays, talks, poetry readings, exhibitions, competitions and tree plantings. Trees are part of our national treasure and they are enjoyed by humans, various wildlife and numerous species of birds, and they are good for the environment.
