The Peoples Millennium Forests project

Submissions were invited from the public in 1998, which resulted in over 30 proposals from numerous sources, including individuals, State-bodies, research institutions, ENGOs and private enterprises. Amongst others, proposals included the restoration of existing native woodlands, the creation of new native woodlands and the establishment of native tree nurseries. Subsequent to the refinement of these proposals, submissions were made to the National Millennium Committee and to AIB Bank in 1999. Approval was sanctioned and funding provided, which amounted to €5.1 million, which is the largest native woodland project ever, to date
