remove carbon dioxide from the air and replace it with clean, pure oxygen.

As long as a tree lives, and trees can live for many decades and even centuries, the carbon remains trapped within.

Planting trees in Ireland is also imperative to maintaining the natural balance of the environment and its inhabitants.

Simply put, birds and animals need trees in order to survive and the native Irish trees found throughout our woodlands are the most critical component of protecting and preserving our wildlife.

Trees act as a limitless source of shelter and sustenance for countless woodland creatures.

and their undergrowth provide an abundance of food for various wildlife while also providing them with natural habitat.

Our environment would be greatly damaged by the absence of all the animals who depend on the trees of Ireland, which is why we must conserve and expand the environments in which they thrive.

Every time you gift a tree in honour or celebration of someone, you are also providing a home and food source to the many animals inhabiting the woodlands of Ireland.

There are no conceivable negatives to planting trees in Ireland but there are countless positives.

Nature-based solutions, such as planting trees, are consistently found to be the most effective in the fight against climate change and it is something to which you can easily contribute.

Gifting a tree is also an invaluable gift to the future of our precious planet.

It serves a dual purpose of remembering those who have passed and considering the health and happiness of generations to come.

Planting trees is the best weapon we have at our disposal in tackling the climate crisis and saving our environment.
