TY Tree-Planting
12 Oct 2020
Our TYs planted 17 trees today as part of their Community Involvement Program in conjunction with Killorglin Tidy Towns. Believe it or not Ireland has the lowest forest cover in Europe, a paltry 11% in comparison to a European average of well over 30%. An increase in the number of trees is very important to the future of the planet and our thanks to James Daly for educating our students, providing trees and imparting his knowledge on where and how to plant native species such as Oak, Silver Birch, Scot's Pine and Mountain Ash. If there is an area around Killorglin or an estate, for example, where you would like some trees to be planted please contact the school and we will do our best to make it happen.
