Today is the end of our bare-root planting season. How fantastic that all of our sponsors had the trees distributed so far in advance, which meant that all 60,000 saplings are either safely planted or else heeled in awaiting November. Thank you to Coillte and Trees on the Land for their sterling support! What a logistical exercise! Please send us in any photos still sitting on your phones so we can pass them on to thank all of our donors! 15,000 of these were ordinarily planted during tree week so we are not counting them, we are only counting what was planted that is extra to the annual effort, which comes in at an ex-tree-ordinary 45,000. Now to add them to the counter! A picture below of one of our recent Academies before restrictions; how glad we will be when we can get back to such field days!
