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
During our pilot phase (2013 to
2016) we have planted over 650,000 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. Please click here to see a map of our
planting work so far.
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 working to secure full funding to plant a million trees in one day next season 2016 /17. If you would like to help us with a donation please click here.
