What are we doing?
We’re raising money to buy land in the Heart of Ireland. Then, using the Native Woodland Scheme Grant, we will plant a new native woodland. This commemorative woodland will be dedicated to Ireland and the Irish Diaspora.
Its design will welcome native species, bee migration and biodiversity. A spiral trail will lead visitors to its centre. In 2045 we will plant a standing stone to mark the 200-year anniversary of the Great Famine.
Why are we doing this?
After centuries of mismanagement, Ireland now has the lowest native forestry cover in Europe (less than 2%). We’re on a mission to heal the wounds of history by strengthening the bonds of the International Irish Community by working TOGETHER to reclaim our lost forests.
— Lowest native forestry cover in Europe less than 2% —
— Drastically lower then the European average —
— +70% of Irish Forest is Monoculture Commerical Forestry —
