Native Conifers – Future Forests
Native Conifers

Native Conifers

Ireland has just three native conifers: the ancient yew, the shrubby juniper (with berries for gin), and the scot's pine with its textured reddish brown bark. They are all hardy, beautiful plants that suit very different gardens, so make sure to check the details!

Learn more about how to plant a tree in our advice section and find even more information in our resources.



Bareroot conifers | mid-November to March

Bareroot trees are only available from mid-November to March. You can learn more about the differences between bareroot and potted plants in our advice section.

Potted conifers | all year round

Potted trees are available all year, but the best selection, and the best time to plant, is in late spring (April to May) and early autumn (September to October).
