The Emerald Isle is about to get even greener with mass reforestation plans

Ireland was once covered by 80% of native trees and was once a thriving rainforest that was known as ‘the lungs’ of Europe.

However, with a rising population and a limited land mass on which to fit modern infrastructure, mass deforestation occurred, which reduced tree cover to just 14%, which is one of the lowest tree covers in Europe.

To combat this problem and to encourage the rewilding of native flora and fauna, Ireland has promised to plant 440 million trees by 2040 which will stand as one of the biggest reforestation projects in the world and will also help Ireland hit its emission-reducing targets, in the wake of combating climate change.
