Watch 5th class planting a native Irish tree in our school grounds with their teacher Mr. Heffernan.
The tree is a Scots Pine tree. One of only three native coniferous trees in Ireland.
It can grow for up to 300 years and will likely grow up to 30 metres tall at full height.
The needles of the tree are blue/green and grow in pairs, making it easier to recognise.
The Scots pine tree is also a favourite of the native Irish red squirrel.
Planted by Mr. Heffernan’s 5th class on October 8th 2020.
