John, the ‘Treeman’, spent a morning with us here at Boyle Parochial recently.  His knowledge of TREES is phenomenal.  John willingly shares this knowledge and encourages everyone listening to give our beautiful native trees a chance.

On a practical note, all children planted an acorn which had already been germinated.  Each child brought home the potted acorn with a promise to nurture and care for it.

A similar workshop in 2019 has yielded excellent results. Axel brought in the acorn which he planted four years ago with John.  The metre high tree is now ready to go into the ground.  Great oaks from little acorns really do grow!!
