Wishing “Yew” All a Merry Christmas!


Thanks so very much to Niall Conway, good friend of the trees – he has been planting them since he was in primary school he told me today – for updating our website so that we can do more.

So much is happening with our project right now; it was such a pleasure to represent Crann at the Tree Council December meeting in the glorious setting of the Botanic Gardens and meet so many of the members. There is so much extraordinary work going on – one of the really exciting projects being the Crann-led “Giant’s Glen” Redwood project. We have learned so much in recent weeks, participating  at the Woodland Trust AGM – they are also working on some dazzling projects – and the Crann AGM also took place recently. How lovely to be asked back to meet with Diarmaid McAree and Marguerite Arbuthnot-O Brien to outline what we are up to in Easytreesie and get the benefit of their advice. It was also most interesting to meet with the tree-planting project originating in the UCD Science Department with its founder Felip – he is collaborating with one of my new fellow Climate Ambassadors who I look forward to meeting at our inaugural session next month.  There will just about be time for that as our 3,000 tree plantation commences in January in Seagrange Park. All go!
