The Parks and Landscape Services Division also had an important role in the provision and maintenance of street trees. There are more than 60,000 street and roadside trees within the city, with an average of 5000 trees being planted by Dublin City Council in the city each year.
In addition the Division also looks after civic decoration such as street planters, and seasonal displays such as Christmas Trees.
Native Tree Trails
There are nine Native Tree Trails in Dublin City Council Parks. On the southside, we have four which are located in Bushy Park, Markievicz Park, Ballyfermot, Herbert Park in Ballsbridge and Lansdowne Valley Park, Inchicore.
On the Northside we have five which are located in Poppintree Park, Johnstown, Albert College Park, St Annes Park and Tolka Valley Park.
The Trails will help to introduce you to a selection of Ireland's native trees. There are 15 native trees signposts in each Park. To find them you can navigate your way around the park using The Native Tree Trail Booklet
