This week, in my role as Minister of State with responsibility for Land Use and Biodiversity, I was pleased to welcome the publication of ‘A Guide for Landowners to Managing Roadside Trees’.


So many of our roadside trees in Ireland are beautiful and they add much to our countryside, our landscape and our natural heritage. However, trees may become physically damaged during their lifetime due to the impact of a storm or of a pest or disease attack. Such occurrences have the potential to make roadside trees unsafe so it is very important that, in order to minimise any possible risk to people or property, landowners look after them properly and proactively.


Joining me for the launch was Éanna Ní Lamhna, President of the Tree Council of Ireland and Cormac Downey Vice President of TCI. You can read the full Press Release and read how to request a hardcopy of the Guide on the gov.ie website here or download the Guide here.
