Applications for trees are now open for the 2021 planting project. It has not been a straightforward preparation for the coming planting season due to the ongoing issues with Covid-19.
Tree Pack Schemes:
The schemes are open to all landowners – farmers, smallholders, community groups, schools, colleges, councils, sports clubs, golf courses and others.
Tree packs are divided into two sections this year:
Small Tree Packs: From 1 – 250 trees – Application deadline Sunday 15th November 2020.
Larger Tree Packs: Over 250 trees – Application deadline Sunday 25th October 2020.
Please note the two deadline dates in October and November.
Application Fees: Application Fees apply to all small tree packs and are based on €25 per 50 trees and €18 for apple trees. Small packs start at €6.
Sponsored Trees: There are new sponsored tree schemes for schools, colleges, farms, sports clubs and communities.
Direct Delivery of Trees:
Due to Covid-19 there will sadly not be the usual collection points this season and will be delivering tree packs out directly to each applicant by courier instead. There will be a new delivery cost of €15 added to all orders. This will cover packing and delivery to all 32 counties as a flat fee per order. Deliveries will commence late-November and continue through to mid-March in order to stagger the work across the winter season. The majority of deliveries will go out during January and February and we will give everyone plenty of notice of their delivery before it is dispatched.
