Wexford County Council has a limited supply of trees / hedging for distribution under the Trees for Wexford campaign. The number of trees allocated to each group will depend on budget and number of applications received. Every effort will be made to facilitate all applications but please be aware that the scheme may be oversubscribed and it may be necessary to reduce the number of trees/hedging/saplings given to each group or not all applications will be successful. Trees must be planted in a public place and the applicant has consent to apply on behalf of the group.
Once approval has been granted groups will be responsible for the collection of trees from Holmestown Household Recycling Centre, Barntown, Wexford. The planting and maintenance of the trees will be the responsibility of the group.
