Finalist 2022 Mayo Business Awards - Sustainability Initiative
Making a difference one tree at a time.
Site A: Louisburgh, Mayo.
This is one of our sites in West Mayo, with stunning views of Croagh Patrick in the background. This site has over 20 acres of land ideally suited for afforestation using a combination of oak, birch, holly, alder, rowan and beech. We are working with the landowner to make new forested areas and extend existing hedgerows to create nature corridors.
Site D: South East Galway.
A beautiful site located right on the Esker Riada which runs right across the country from Galway to Dublin. This site is close to the sea, south facing and will, in time, be a fantastic woodland to enjoy and provide habitat to our native flora and fauna.
Site G: Westport, Mayo.
A small hidden corner of Westport with fantastic views of Croagh Patrick and Nephin. Planted with a mix of Oak, Beech, Rohan and Alder, this site recovered well from the drought earlier in 2020 with some of the Oaks miraculously coming back from the dead in the middle of the wet and warm summer.
Site B: Ballina, Mayo.
A 30-acre site just outside Ballina, Co. Mayo which the new owners have committed to turn into a mosaic of biodiversity. We are working with an ecologist to create a comprehensive plan which suits the varying locations on this site to include meadows, micro forests etc. to maximise the fantastic eco-potential of the area for the long-term benefit of the local flora and fauna.
Site E: Easky, Sligo.
An amazing site with a wonderfully rich history. Already bursting with wildlife and trees this site is an ideal planting site for our future native Irish woodland. The eco-friendly owners of the site are fully committed to improving their land and wider area for generations to come. The perfect partner for Catch My Carbon. 800 trees planted here in 2021!
Site H: Easky, Sligo.
A coastal sheltered site planted with 100 oaks as a start this year. This is also one of the best surfing spots in the world!
Site C: Clarinbridge, Galway.
One of our new sites in South-East Galway, 2 acres of great land adjoining an existing native woodland. We are working with the landowner to reforest this section of land with Irish Oak for long term carbon capture and habitat creation.
Site F: Westport, Mayo.
A hilly fertile site with some boggy areas that has great potential for a mix of different tree types to maximize the biodiversity opportunities. Adjoining an existing woodland this site near Westport is destined for great things.
Site I: Kinsale, Cork.
We have just signed up this new site in the rebel county. Hoping to start planting later this year once the planting season kicks off again in November.
