Be part of Giants Grove – the largest forest grove of giant redwoods outside California.

Significant new project planned for Birr Castle Gardens in association with Crann – Trees for Ireland. On the occasion of Lord Rosse’s 80th birthday and Crann's 30th anniversary, Birr Castle and Crann – Trees for Ireland, are delighted to announce ambitious plans to create, through public participation, the largest forest grove of giant redwoods outside of California, within the historic gardens of Birr Castle Gardens.

Space in the Giants Grove of giant or coastal redwood trees will be sponsored in the names of Irish people living abroad as well as people here at home. Space can also be in the names of loved ones gone before us. A certificate will be provided with GPS details of your place in the redwood forest grove. In addition to paying for the planting and establishment costs, sponsorship, starting at 500 Euro, will provide a trust fund for the care & maintenance of the forest grove. As well as a certificate of dedication, the names of the sponsors will be inscribed in a Book of Honour at Birr Castle.
