New trees for the Park – Many larger older trees have had to be felled due to danger and disease such as Ganoderma and Kretzschmaria Deusta which can cause crown or trunk collapse. In commemoration of 1916 a new avenue of 185 Plane Trees is being planted along Furze Road (across main Avenue from Visitor Centre). Think about planting a tree, suitable to smaller gardens, for next generation to enjoy. www.phoenixpark.ie
