Rowan are delighted to support three generations of the Hughes Family to plant 18 acres of Native Irish Woodland in Rathmolyon, Trim, Co. Meath, as part of the Woodland Environmental Fund (WEF). Our video below shows George, his son Jason and two grandchildren Eliot and Sofia planting Oak, Rowan, Hazel, Birch, Crab Apple, and Whitethorn. Planting began on the morning of the Winter Solstice (21st December) with Tom Rowan and Ian Douglas showing their lack of forestry skills by planting a few trees under the amused supervision of the Hughes family.
We are delighted to be involved in this project which aligns with Rowan’s vision to “complete excellent work and achieve our business and sustainability goals while maintaining our sense of humour”. Rowan’s involvement in this project was an initiative of Sarah Caraher (Rowan Energy & Sustainability Lead), in conjunction with the Hughes family and Forestry Services Ltd who are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC™).
