The National Tree Council of Ireland’s ‘National Tree Week 2014’, takes place from March 2 to 8.
Sponsored by SSE Airtricity - Ireland’s greenest home energy provider – the week-long festival is now in its 30th year. This year’s theme, ‘The Sound of Trees’, highlights the many ways in which trees enrich our daily lives with sound - whether it’s the rustle of leaves in woodlands, the chirping of birds in a forest, a fiddle reaching a crescendo or heels dancing on a timber floor.
