Trees on the Land

 Applications Open!

Applications for trees are now open for the 2021 planting project.

Direct Delivery of Trees:

There will be a new delivery cost of €15 added to all orders.  This will cover packing and delivery to all 32 counties as a flat fee per order.  

Deliveries will commence late-November and continue through to mid-March in order to stagger the work across the winter season.  The majority of deliveries will go out during January and February and we will give everyone plenty of notice of their delivery before it is dispatched.

No Big Planting Day in February:

A knock on effect of Covid-19; we will sadly not be running our usual big Saturday planting day in February.  This will mean that people can get on and plant their trees as soon as they receive them or store them until it is convenient to plant before the spring.  

Tree Pack Schemes:
  The schemes are open to all landowners - farmers, smallholders, community groups, schools, colleges, councils, sports clubs, golf courses and others.

Tree packs are divided into two sections this year:

Small Tree Packs: From 1 - 250 trees - Application deadline Sunday 15th November 2020.
Larger Tree Packs: Over 250 trees - Application deadline Sunday 25th October 2020.
Please note the two deadline dates in October and November.

Application Fees:  Application Fees apply to all small tree packs and are based on €25 per 50 trees and €18 for apple trees.  Small packs start at €6.

Sponsored Trees: There are new sponsored tree schemes for schools, colleges, farms, sports clubs and communities.  

All of the information about the project and details for making an application are on the website.

Pre-application enquiries are welcome - please email to with any queries before making your application.  Please don't panic if you do not receive an immediate reply, we deal with each enquiry individually and will get to you as soon as possible. 

With best wishes,
Imogen and the Trees on the Land team.
