Treecovery is a volunteer run organisation that aims to crowdfund to buy native, Irish sapling trees and donate them to suitable land owners. We have a target planting area of 5000 hectares. We are a source of information and support for planting trees.

Donegal Pens was established in 2010 by brothers Rónán & Conor Mc Garvey, then aged just 13 and 10 years. To date the pens are stocked in shops in Ireland, Europe and the US as well as being available direct from the website with worldwide shipping.
Choose from our range of hand crafted wooden pens, turned and assembled in the Donegal Gaeltacht in Ireland.
All pens are individually hand crafted in our workshop at Loughanure, County Donegal. Each pen is unique, receiving personal attention from start to finish and will be a gift to treasure.
The pens are individually turned and polished and then carefully examined to ensure a high quality. We create pens in many types of wood including Bog Oak, Yew, Ash, Elm, Olive, Beech, Cherry, Laburnum, Red Cedar, Purple Heart, Oak, Maple, Pear, Walnut & Spalted Beech.
We welcome you to browse our website and see the full range of our products.
Our vision is to see the Earth wild again.
In ancient Ireland trees were held sacred by the people. Native forests of oak, ash, elm, birch, pine, alder and hazel trees flourished across Ireland’s landscape. The chieftain trees were the most revered and it was a crime to cut them down. By 1900, less than one percent of these woodlands remained. We want to see them return and create sustainable and long term ecosystems for wildlife.
We fundamentally believe that more heads are better than one. We aim to create a community of diverse thinkers, collaborating to find creative solutions to environmental issues and restoring the earth.
The first step in building towards this vision is simple, get people planting trees. We aim to inspire tree planting locally but also connect with landowners who are happy to donate their land to wilding projects. We are also looking to promote sustainable and ethical businesses that share our values.
