The planting will complement the existing tree canopy, provide a diversity of habitat layers, screen undesirable views, reduce wind speed and enhance amenity value. Previous National Tree Day plantings at Bressington Park have thrived with the help of volunteers and we anticipate this years planting will be equally successful!
