Trees on the Land

Applications for trees are now open.

We're delighted to announce that applications for trees are now open for the Winter 2021-2022 planting project.

This update includes a quick summary of the project and tree packs for this winter planting.  For more detailed information follow the link towards the bottom of the update which will take you to the website and tree pack applications. 

Tree Pack Schemes:

Tree Packs: From 1 - 250 trees - open to all landowners: farmers, smallholders, community groups, schools, colleges, councils, sports clubs, golf courses, gardeners and others.

Tree packs are available for planting small woodland areas, hedgerows, shelter belts, coppice and apple trees.

Application Fees:  Application Fees apply to all tree packs and are based on €0.50c per tree. Apple trees are more expensive at €18 each.  The smallest tree packs start at €6.

Sponsored Trees: There are sponsored tree schemes for schools, colleges, farms, sports clubs, golf clubs, community groups and councils.  You will find information on these schemes on the application pages of the website.

Application Deadline: Applications for trees will close at 6pm on Friday 8th October 2021.  This deadline applies to all landowners and tree planting schemes.  Please apply promptly to avoid disappointment as we cannot take late applications.  


Direct Delivery of Trees:

Last season we delivered trees direct to each applicant by courier to ensure that we could distribute trees safely through the various Covid-19 lockdowns.  The system worked really well and we will be continuing to use the couriers this coming winter to guard against any further interruptions.  

There is a delivery cost of €15 added to all orders.  This covers packing and delivery to all 32 counties as a flat fee per order.  We realise this is a hefty added cost; we hope that you will understand and find the deliveries convenient and safe for all.  

Deliveries will commence in December and continue through to early 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.

To make an application:

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

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.
