The National Conservation Commission (NCC) has launched its Tree Donation Programme with an ambitious goal of planting 20,000 trees by Arbor Day 2020.
To this end, the Commission is inviting individuals, plant nurseries, schools, service clubs, and corporate entities to participate in the programme.
NCC officials say Arbor Day is celebrated on September 22, annually, but donations can commence during this month, and will be accepted until September 2020.
Officials note that corporate entities or service clubs may have their own sections in the National Botanical Gardens at Waterford by donating at least 50 trees.
This officials say will automatically make them a Corporate Forest Partner.
