Crann, the magazine, is a mix of technical and non-technical material. The subject that most articles have in common is (surprise, surprise) trees, though we do feature interesting and relevant pieces about the environment and wildlife, plants and nature, and all that sort of stuff.

We just love and appreciate the landscape, be it rural or urban, the back garden, over the roadside hedge, or the far-off mountainside. Especially when it has trees in it. The one thing we’re not is stuffy. And, while we have a special interest in promoting trees that are native to Ireland, we don’t turn up our collective nose at anything to do with trees, whether they are foreign nationals or natives of deepest Leitrim.

Crann, the magazine, is a high-quality publication mailed directly to members of Crann, the organisation. The wonderful thing about Crann, the magazine, is that it’s mainly written by the members themselves – who also supply the pictures. The entire package is then put together by a professional team comprising the Editor, the Designer and the Printers.

If you have an article in mind that you would like to see published in Crann, here’s what to do.

Crann is a non-profit charitable organisation formed to raise awareness of the importance of trees and hedgerows. Founded in 1986 by Jan Alexander, Crann is now one of Irelands leading environmental organisations with excellent media coverage and a growing membership.

Crann magazine is mailed to all Crann members and complementary copies are sent to a large number of the leading figures and businesses operating in the forest industry such as the Forest Service, the forestry companies and Government ministers. Copies are also mailed to libraries throughout Ireland and most media representatives.

By advertising with Crann you are assured of a wide readership while at the same time helping with our work towards “Releafing Ireland” and “Standing up for Trees”. Crann magazine is supported by a wide range of businesses and organisations and we could not continue with our work without their help.
