Forest of Belfast

The Forest of Belfast which was set up in 1992, is a partnership between central government, local authorities, private sector bodies, voluntary organisations and individuals who are involved in tree planting and management in and around Belfast.

They have a number of aims and objectives including:

  • conserving and managing trees
  • raising awareness of trees and forestry
  • involving the community in tree planting and management.

They aim to raise awareness of trees and forestry by:

  • giving community groups more than 100,000 trees to plant throughout the greater Belfast area
  • encouraging people to take care of recently planted trees and fine mature trees
  • raising awareness of trees through the media, events, conferences and meetings
  • encouraging the development of a ‘tree culture’
  • researching the history of trees in Belfast

The Forest of Belfast have contributed records relating to 500 trees to the Ancient Tree Hunt
