atest press release from ReWild Wicklow, issued on Thursday, December 8th 2022…
Local community group ReWild Wicklow has launched a tree planting initiative in collaboration with the Wicklow Mountains National Park rangers and the Native Woodland Trust to plant over 2,000 native trees across the Wicklow Uplands this winter.
To support this initiative they are asking the public of Wicklow and beyond to gift trees to loved ones this Christmas. They are offering three beautifully illustrated gift certificates for Scots pine, oak and hawthorn trees.
We are delighted to be partnering with the National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Native Woodland Trust to be planting hundreds of trees across Wicklow this winter. All funds raised will be used to buy the chosen trees and materials for planting in one of the sites in Glendalough, Laragh or across the Wicklow Mountains.
“We set the group up to make a real difference to biodiversity in Wicklow,” said chairperson Danny Alvey. “We’re delighted we can now work with NPWS and the Native Woodland Trust to plant hundreds of trees this winter. We have over 500 volunteers on our list already and to date we’ve already helped to plant 2,000 trees. We can’t wait to get to work and plant another 2,000 this winter! Please consider donating to our cause or joining our volunteer list and lending a hand!”
The certificates have been brought to life by beautiful illustrations donated to the initiative by Wicklow artist Emily Robyn Archer from her Native Circles collection (see more from Emily here). Each certificate will also be personalised with the recipient and sender names and emailed in high res PDF for printing at home or sending virtually.
They can be purchased on the community group’s website here.
