The Tree Council of Ireland is delighted once again to sponsor the
TREE PROJECT AWARD
The Right Tree in the Right Place
Properly positioned trees can have a major impact on a city, town or village enhancing
the visual aspect of an area. Therefore, it is essential that careful thought is put not only into
the planting of the trees but also the tree management over their lifespan.
