Following the guidelines as laid out by the HSE in relation to COVID-19 specifically regarding social distancing, the Tree Council of Ireland, in partnership with Coillte, have made the decision to postpone National Tree Week 2020 and all its related public events. To this end, we have closed our Events Programme until further notice.
