THE Bracker O’Regan Road was a hive of activity last Friday as Tralee Tidy Towns volunteers and 23 staff from Kerry Group headquarters in Tralee came together to plant 236 native Hawthorn trees.

Martha Farrell (Tralee Tidy Towns) said: “We were delighted to get this incredible number of trees planted. These trees were sponsored by charity Easy Treesie and will enhance the appearance of this much-used route: providing beautiful blossoms in late spring/early summer and producing beautiful red berries in autumn.

“They will significantly improve the biodiversity in this area of town in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goal 15 – Life on Land.

“We would like to thank the Kerry Group crew for being such a pleasure to work with and to the Kerry County Council Tralee MD for facilitating it and allowing us to plant on the Bracker O’Regan Road,” said Martha.

Geraldine Forde (Kerry Group) said: “We thoroughly enjoyed partnering with Tralee Tidy Towns to plant trees and increase the biodiversity along Bracker O’Regan Road. The native Hawthorns will not only provide a shelter and habitat for wildlife, but will also be an important food, pollen and nectar source. We all look forward to seeing the trees grow and hope to participate in more events like this in the future.”
