National Tree Week 2017 ran from March 5th to 12th 2017. It is an initiative from the Tree Council of Ireland, an umbrella body for organisations involved in tree planting, management and conservation. The main role of the Tree Council is to promote the planting, care and enjoyment of trees. The Tree Council aims to educate the public through the organisation of events and tree related activities, the publication of literature, and the management of national tree records and through the provision of an information service to the public.
