UCC Arboretum

The Cultural Significance Of Trees


Hosted by UCC Arboretum, this is an evening exploring the history, uses and value of some of the fantastic trees on campus.

The UCC Arboretum, recently accredited by ArbNet, dates from the foundation of the university as Queen’s College Cork in 1845, and makes a significant contribution to UCC’s globally recognised Green Campus. 120 different species are represented in the collection. These species range from native Irish and British trees to American, Asian, Australian and European specimens.

Dr Eoin Lettice, Dr Barbara Doyle Prestwich along with Emma Hutchinson (UCC Tree Explorers Project), will explore and celebrate the cultural significance of some of the fantastic specimens at the UCC Arboretum.
