One Million Trees in One Day is a charity, not-for-profit, cross-border, community and environmental initiative which aims to plant a million young native trees at many different sites across both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland in 24 hours.
We will establish individual trees and woodlands in both rural and urban areas that will grow for many years and which will provide valuable resources, beneficial ecosystem services and a lasting legacy for future generations.
During our pilot phase in 2013 and 2014 we have planted almost 350,000 native trees in Ireland and Northern Ireland. We have trialled the project in detail and have trees planted at over 1,000 different sites across the 32 counties.
This year we are working to secure full funding to plant a million trees. This spring 2015 we are focusing on the last of our pilot work establishing some larger woodlands and agroforestry projects in Ireland and running another trial planting event on Saturday 11th April 2015.

Planting a million trees in one day is a great
challenge. We believe that many hands make light
work; the more people joining the huge team that will
bring this project to fruition, the easier the job will
be. If you would like to help us with a donation please
