The Tree Council of Ireland is delighted once again to sponsor the


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. 

The Tree Project Award, sponsored by the Tree Council of Ireland,
is two-fold.
It may be given in recognition to the Tidy Towns Committee which has demonstrated
the highest tree(s) placement standard using, but not limited to, the following
criteria and conditions:

Height of the tree
Growth rate of the tree
Size and shape of the tree canopy
Coniferous or Deciduous
Leaf fall blocking drains
Blossoms/fruit fall on pavements
Soil, sun and moisture requirements of the tree
Vehicular damage
Shading other properties
Other trees in the area
Easily maintained
Tree guards/grilles required for protection
Carbon sequestration

The tree(s)
- must be in a public place
- may be existing or newly planted
- must be well maintained
- must be located appropriately on the site

The project should also contain an element of raising awareness of trees within the community.

Equally, this award may be given to the TidyTowns Committee which has taken to preserving
old, established trees for generations to come; trees that are known for
their natural, historical, cultural, botanical or landscape significance within the community.
Veteran trees deserve to be protected and conserved.
Our award recognises the efforts taken to preserve wonderful older, ancient trees.
