Why plant trees?

  • Trees also absorb rainwater and can help to reduce and prevent flooding. Tree roots also bind, improve and protect the soil where they are planted preventing soil erosion from wind, rain and flooding.
  • Trees are like the vacuums of our planet. Through their leaves and bark, they absorb carbon dioxide and release clean oxygen for us to breathe.
  • Trees foster Biodiversity, a single tree can be home to hundreds of species of insect, fungi, moss, mammals, and plants. Without trees, forest creatures would have nowhere to call home.
  • Trees root systems act like filters, removing pollutants and slowing down the water’s absorption into the ground. According to the Food and Agriculture Association of the United Nations, a mature evergreen tree can intercept more than 15,000 litres of water every year


How it works?

From April 25th 2022, Flogas Energy are committed to planting a tree for every customer that makes the switch to Flogas Energy. Trees on the Land have a vision to establish tree cover and woodland in rural and urban areas that will grow for many years and provide valuable resources, beneficial ecosystem services for future generations.

Trees on the Land is a charity and not for profit project from the Green Economy Foundation - The Green Economy Foundation (previously the Irish Natural Forestry Foundation) is an Environmental NGO based at the 300-acre Manch Estate in Co. Cork. Established in 2002 to promote sustainable forestry practice.

Where are the trees planted?

Trees on the Land is a cross-border initiative covering the 32 counties of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. They work with farmers, smallholders, community groups, councils, schools, colleges, and other landowners to coordinate hundreds of planting sites to accommodate trees each year.

 When does the planting take place?

Trees on the Land plants trees each winter season between December and March.  Trees are distributed to landowners taking part who then plant the trees themselves with support as needed from the Trees on the Land team.

What sort of trees and woodlands do you plant?

Trees on the Land focuses on native Irish trees. All of the trees are grown in Ireland and are of certified native seed provenance.

They plant individual trees, groups of trees, small woodlands, shelter belts, hedgerows, coppice groves, agroforestry projects, orchards and larger woodlands. They work with hundreds of farmers, smallholders, schools and colleges, community groups, councils and other landowners to coordinate land to accommodate trees each season.

They supply bare-rooted forestry grade whips; these young trees are hardy and well adapted to the Irish climate and being small, can be handled and planted easily.

Are the trees protected or will they be harvested?

Trees on the Land works with landowners to establish continuous tree and woodland cover that will be managed in a sustainable fashion for many generations. They encourage all of our landowners to engage closely with the management of their trees and to use the resources provided. Continuous cover management allows constant regeneration so there should always be trees on the sites originally planted.
