Crann was launched on World Environment Day, June 5, 1986. The motivation behind the organization was to put broadleaved trees back on the agenda so that Ireland could at some stage in the future become self-sufficient in all of its timber needs. Crann is Ireland’s leading voluntary tree organisation dedicated to the promotion and protection of our trees, hedgerows and woodlands.
Crann is a non-profit registered charity uniting people with a love of trees. 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. Current projects include:
• Crann Ballymun Community Tree Project: In the case of the Ballymun project, our objective was to create a feeling of ownership of the trees we planted among the entire community.
• Crann Hedgerow Project: Crann Hedgerow Project was initiated with the aim of raising awareness of the value of hedgerows to farmers, to the landscape, for nature conservation and as a repository for many of the countries broadleaf trees.
