Welcome to The Importance of Trees

Trees are a vital economic, environmental and social resource and are integral to the character of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown. They form a key element of the county’s infrastructure and are amongst the most important features in our towns, villages and rural landscapes. Trees help make the county a more desirable place to live, work, study and spend leisure time.

To highlight the importance of our trees, this National Tree Day Thursday 7th October 2021 dlr Parks will have strategically placed educational tree tags across Fernhill Park and Gardens. The trees will be home to informational tags that invite passersby to engage in appreciation of the trees they encounter, learn about the benefits that the trees provide and come away with knowledge of the critical role that trees play in mitigating the intensifying impacts of climate change. The tags seek to make the unseen benefits of trees tangible to our community.

To find out which trees provide the greatest benefits you can download the activity sheet and have a walk through Fernhill Park and Gardens and/or for further information on the benefits of trees check out our Tree Benefits Info Sheet

We invite you to keep an eye out for these tags as they are rolled out across a number of parks within Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County in the coming days and weeks. Locations can be found on the interactive map below and this will be updated as new tags are sited.
