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 establish tree cover and woodland in both rural and urban areas that will grow for many years and provide valuable resources, beneficial ecosystem services and a lasting legacy for future generations.

During our pilot phase (2013 to 2017) we have planted over 730,000 native trees at more than 3,000 sites in Ireland and Northern Ireland.  We have trialled the project in detail, testing our one day planting concept and the associated administration, fundraising and logistics. 

We plant small woodlands, coppices, orchards, hedgerows, shelter belts, agroforestry projects, reforestation sites and larger woodlands.  We work with farmers, smallholders, community groups, councils, schools, colleges and many other landowners to coordinate sites to accommodate trees each season.

We are currently co-ordinating our next planting day - Saturday 10th February 2018.

This season we are running the project under a new working title - Trees on the Land.   All tree packs, information for landowners, donations, sponsorship and other details are available on the new website - please click HERE.


"The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago.
The second best time is now."
