Construction company BAM has planted 9,000 trees around Ireland as part of 150th anniversary celebrations.

The tree planting, that included a mix of native Irish species, took place in Ballineen, Cork as well as Newcastle in Wicklow, Brookeborough in Fermanagh and Ballymoney in Antrim.

CEO of BAM Ireland, Theo Cullinane attended the Cork event where 500 trees were planted.

The event was carried out with the Green Economy Foundation and their ‘Trees on the Land’ project - a cross-border initiative to establish young native trees in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

By the end of the year the Royal BAM Group will have planted 150,000 trees in locations around the world to highlight its sustainability agenda and commitment to reducing its carbon footprint.

Speaking about the project Mr Cullinane said: “At BAM Ireland sustainability is part of the fabric of our business. Our key promise is building the present, creating the future and by planting trees across the island of Ireland it emphasises our commitment to the generations ahead of us.

“It is BAM’s mission to create sustainable environments that enhance people's lives and for more than 60 years we have built impressive buildings and infrastructure that has met this challenge and it is something we are very proud of.”
