The Tree Council of Ireland
an umbrella body for organisations involved in tree planting, management and conservation. The main role of the Tree Councils is to promote the planting, care and enjoyment of trees and it does this through networking with its members and friends, the organisation of events and tree related activities, the publication of literature, the management of national tree records and through the provision of an information service to the public.
