National Tree Huggers Project
Through our National Tree Hugging Contest – which represents the Irish leg of the European Tree of the Year Contest, Just Forests aims to get people in Ireland to look around them and appreciate the fabulous trees in their locality. People and trees with interesting stories from all over Ireland took part in our National Tree Hugging Contests in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Unlike in other contests, the age, beauty and height of the trees are not really that important. What is important though is the story that the tree holds. Below you can read what a number of tree huggers in Ireland think about their “special” tree.

Let’s feature your tree story here!
Why not tell us all about your favourite tree? We all have one you know! Send your tree picture and story (as long as you like) as well as some information about yourself to info(at)justforests(dot)org. Please put Tree Story in the “subject” line of the email.
