National Tree Week 2016

'A Feast of Trees - Féile na gCrainn 2016'

A Week of Trees

National Tree Week, organised by the Tree Council of Ireland since 1985 is a week long programme of events to celebrate trees.

This years event will be sponsored by the ESB in association with Coillte and will be known as ESB Tree Week and will commence on Sunday1stof March 

Programme of Events Louth

Event: Woodland walk and picnic (picnic weather permitting)

Event Date:Sunday, 6th March

Location:  Ravensdale Forest Park

Event Time: 1.30pm

Organising Body/Organiser: Louth Woodland Gatherings

Event Description and Details:

We will be taking a different route this year. Instead of going directly through the woods, the walk will take us around the boundaries of the forest. It is approximately 5.5 km in length and is of moderate level. This means that although the majority of the trail is flat there will be uneven ground in places and uphill in others, so buggies will not be suitable for this walk. 

Information about the tree species in Ravensdale Forest will also be provided on this walk as it is part of National Tree Week. 

Dogs are allowed but must be kept under the owners control at all times.

Meeting up point is Ravensdale Forest car park and walk will commence at 1:30 sharp. There will also be a brief talk on the tree species of the forest. It should be noted that the walk is not suitable for buggies.

As usual, anyone is welcome to join us on our events.

Walkers are advised to wear comfortable foot wear and to bring a raincoat, just in case.

Bring some food and drink for yourself in case we get lucky with the weather and we’re able to have the picnic.

Important Information:

Cars and other property that is left in forest car park, is left there at owners own risk.

Neither Louth Woodland Gathering or anyone else will be held responsible for any accidents or injuries accrued.

No accidents or car break-ins have ever happened to us on these events so I wouldn’t let the previous statement put you off joining us.

Hope to see many of you at this event, and as it is Tree Week, I will expect to see some tree hugging going on
