Supporting Tree Planting & Wild Flowers
Reduce your carbon footprint and plant a tree.
Every year at Ballymacrown Homestead we try to plant at least 50 trees. To help us achieve our goal we offer our guests a free young sapling to take home and plant.
If you don't have room for a tree there's a free packet of native wildflower seeds instead (UK or Irish wildflowers depending on where you live).
The choice of trees for 2012 includes: Paper Birch, Bird Cherry, Elder, Crab Apple or Guelder Rose.
The trees and wildflowers were chosen for the variety of birds, butterflies and bees they support and in the case of the cherry, crab apple and elder their fruits for making jams, jellies and elderflower champayne & wine.
