What are the benefits of CityTrees?

‘CityTrees’ help to combat fine dust particle pollution as well as other pollution associated with traffic congestion.

Air pollution is responsible for up to 1,300 deaths in Ireland each year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Each CityTree can filter the air usage equivalent of up to 7,000 people per hour.

CityTrees are being installed in Cork city centre as a site-specific solution to the challenge of air pollution and to support public health across our city.
