Our Trees: A Guide to Growing Ireland’s Native Trees

Our Trees: A Guide to Growing Ireland’s Trees and Shrubs in celebration of a new Millennium

As part of the People’s Millennium Forests project, this publication, which is targeted at all stakeholders, was produced and published by the project. A very popular publication, it provides general information on our native trees and shrubs and in particular, guidance on growing them from seed and cuttings. If you would like to learn more about Native Irish Tree Seed, we have some webinars going into detail about genetic resources and the regulation requirements. Alternatively, you can also source Native Irish Trees from nurseries, we have compiled a non-exhaustive list of tree nurseries on the island of Ireland that supply indigenous native stock.
