Shankill Tidy Towns & Crann – People for Trees celebrate National Tree Week 2018

Shankill Tidy Towns and Crann – Trees for Ireland supported by DLR Parks celebrated National Tree Week- Seachtain Náisiúnta na gCrann – with numerous tree planting ceremonies throughout Shankill during that week. 

These tree plantings complemented Shankill’s ‘Trees for All’ project where more than 15,000 trees have been planted there since the project started in 2012. The objective, now exceeded, was to plant one tree for every resident in Shankill (over 13,500)

Crann, an organisation to promote education and awareness around trees and woodlands and an active member of DLR PPN, has partnered DLR on a number of interesting projects in the county. Most recently, Crann partnered with DLR in the tree planting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the new Stonebridge Public Park in Shankill. The snow had melted but a cold wind still blew across the park on the 7th March as Mary Mitchell O’Connor TD planted a tree to formally declare the park open.
