Applegreen meets 100,000 native tree planting target
Applegreen invited pupils from O’Growney National School in Athboy, Co Meath, to a newly-planted native tree forest just outside the town.
Applegreen asked the local school children to help with planting the final six birch, ash and oak trees of a colossal 100,000 native trees that are being grown in Counties Westmeath, Leitrim and Galway.
Applegreen’s forest creation commitment supports the Irish Government’s Woodland Environmental Fund (WEF) which is designed to contribute to Ireland’s biodiversity and climate change goals.
Applegreen is now one of the largest Irish contributors to the WEF programme, having committed to growing 300,000 native Irish trees by the end of 2023.
