What we do

Crann ‘Trees for Ireland’ was formed in 1986 with the aim of “Releafing Ireland”. Crann is Ireland’s leading voluntary tree organisation dedicated to the promotion and protection of our trees, hedgerows and woodlands. It is a membership-based, non profit registered charity (CHY13698) uniting people with a love of trees.  Probably Crann is now best known for its high quality Crann Magazine and for the Crann ‘Tidy Towns Assist Programme’ and the numerous school visits we provide through the Crann ‘Bring a Tree to School’ Programme.

Crann ‘Trees for Ireland’ networks and co-operates with other organisations.  We are Members of The Tree Council of Ireland, an umbrella body for organisations involved in tree planting, management and conservation.  We are also Members of the Irish Environmental Network and receive funding from them – the IEN is a network of individual environmental Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) that work individually and, as appropriate, jointly to protect and enhance the environment, and to place environmental issues centre stage in Ireland and internationally.

Crann’s mission is to enhance the environment of Ireland through planting, promoting, protecting and increasing awareness about trees and woodlands.
