National Tree Week  4 to 11 March 2018

National Tree Week 4 to 11 March 2018

Cavan County Council is supporting the Tree Council of Ireland in promoting National Tree Week 2018, from 4 to 11 March

Published on: 21 Feb 2018

The Tree Council of Ireland has donated a limited number of free saplings to Cavan County Council for distribution to schools and local community groups.

Trees are recognised as one of the essential parts of our environment for the role they play in cleaning air, preventing the build-up of greenhouse gases and providing renewable energy and materials for building.  Trees also play an essential role in providing habitats for thousands of plants and animals and are important for soil stabilisation.


Applications should be submitted in writing to the Waste Management Section, Cavan County Council, Old Library Building, Farnham Street, Cavan, Co. Cavan, H12RV10, by email at, or by telephone on 049 437 8300.


Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, 28 February 2018. Trees will be distributed from Monday 5 March 2018.
