This week as part of National Tree Week Intel is on a crusade to preserve and restore the orchard on the Leixlip campus. The orchard located to the far west of the site is an Aladdin’s cave for horticulturists.
The orchard is home to around 17 apple trees of differing varieties as well as a few plum and pear trees. At the minute the orchard is in sad state of repair, overgrown with weeds, ivy and briars. But Tree Week has given the perfect opportunity to kick start a 40th Anniversary project to restore and rejuvenate the orchard, and more importantly save the trees, some of which are unique to Leixlip.
Shane Fitzgerald, a qualified horticulturist and member of the Green Party visited the site this week, along with Corporate Affairs’ manager Brendan Cannon. Shane was excited by the ‘massive potential’ of the project. Which when finished the orchard should be a nice place for employees to visit throughout the day.
