Ireland was once covered in thick blankets of forestry following the last ice age. Today, Ireland’s forests are mere isolated islands in a vastly agricultural and urbanised environment. This workshop will introduce participants to many of Ireland’s native tree & shrub species found within Ireland’s woodlands nowadays as well as some non-native species which have naturalised here and are now commonplace. Following an introduction, overview, and insight into key identification features of Ireland’s trees and shrubs, participants will partake in a fieldtrip to a local woodland site.

The National Biodiversity Data Centre is a national organisation for the collection, collation, management, analysis and dissemination of data on Ireland’s biological diversity. Biodiversity data are a key requirement for understanding our natural surroundings, for tracking change in our environment and for gaining a greater insight on how we benefit from, and impact upon, the ecosystem goods and services provided by biological diversity; a national asset which contributes at least €2.6 billion to the Irish economy each year. The Data Centre was established by the Heritage Council in 2007 and is funded by the Heritage Council and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. The Centre is operated under a service level agreement by Compass Informatics Limited, an information and location technologies company focused on applications in natural resources and planning.
