The big issue
Ireland is often referred to as “The Emerald Isle” and is synonymous with the colour green – at least forty shades, or so the famous Johnny Cash song goes. So it it might come as a surprise for people to learn that Ireland has the lowest forest cover of all European countries at roughly 10.5%. Compare this to the 38% average for the rest of the EU as a whole and 31% worldwide and it begins to paint a picture of just how far we are trailing behind.
It wasn’t always this way, we used to have 80% forest coverage but a mixture of ice age, climate change and human intervention decimated our environment and we were left with less than 1% forest cover. We have since bounced back to our current 10.5% figure but it simply isn’t enough. Our aim is to reforest Ireland and allow you or your business to offset your carbon footprint in the process.
Select the numbers of trees you would like to plant and we will bring them to life and provide you with a certificate you can be proud of. If you are buying the trees as a gift let us know so we can make it out to the recipient!
