Our Rowan Tree Arrives!

Today, a Rowan sapling came in the post! The sapling was sent free in the post to Ms. Hardiman who applied for it from the Irish Tree Council. 

The Rowan is an native Irish tree. Red berries are it's fruit. The Rowan grows in most areas but thrives in mountainous areas where the soil is well drained. In winter time it gives colour to mountainous regions. The Mistle Thrush will defend the Rowan Tree in Winter because the Rowan provides it with food.

We will plant the sapling in a pot and when it is strong enough we will plant the young tree.

Hopefully, the tree will attract a wider variety of birds to our school making the school more bio diverse.
