Hometree began in a small community garden project in winter 2015. Five years on, hometree has planted over 30,000 pioneer trees, while hundreds of people have contributed time and resources to the vision of incorporating more trees into the Irish landscape, bringing all the benefits that woodlands create.
The main object for which the Body is established is to create and conserve native woodland and rehabilitate the land to improved ecological status. They achieve this by purchasing land and using best practices to restore biodiversity and create new woodlands throughout Ireland. They inform the public on best ecological practices and host workshops and open days.
