Update on Tree Planting Project ( 24th April 2013)

Well folks, our trees were planted last night!! 10 Hornbeam trees outside Tuthills carpark, 2 Silver Birch on Tower Road and 2 Hornbeam at the corner of Tower Road/Nangor Road. We are awaiting confirmation of how many trees were planted on Ninth Lock Road and will update as soon as we hear.

As you can imagine, the entire committee is thrilled that this project is now near completion. So much effort has been put into this project and a considerable amount of money has also been raised. Local business owners and residents have contributed towards the overall cost, with Clondalkin Tidy Towns co-funding the project. Photos to follow

Update on Tree Planting Project ( 23rd April 2013)

The tree planting project is at an advanced stage with planting due to take place any day now. The ground has been prepared and all pits have been opened. We have been informed that the trees that were proposed to be planted outside Clondalkin Credit Union will now not proceed as planned.

Also, due to underground services, the Oak trees due to be planted outside Tuthills car park will be replaced by Hornbeams.
