About Tree-Nation

Tree-Nation is an international not-for-profit organisation with plantation projects in over 200 locations worldwide and over 5 Million trees planted in an effort to mitigate climate change.

    What's Involved

    We are looking for volunteers willing to volunteer one day a month to plant trees with us in various locations around Dublin. Our organisation hosts its own plantations and also collaborates with other forestry movements around Dublin to help them successfully plant trees. In addition to the physical activity of planting trees, our volunteers need to be able to help organize and guide various community groups which may vary from primary school classes to college societies.

    The grounds for tree planting are currently being prepared, so we are asking volunteers to sign up now, so we're ready to get started as soon as we have been given the green light!

    What's required for this position

    Strong initiative and positive attitude are key. We also look for responsible and reliable people who will dedicate themselves to at least one plantation event a month and will rarely drop out of an event at the last minute. An affinity for group organisation and working with young people & children will be a great advantage.
