Trees planted

We plant trees.

Gone West is a tree planting company.

Our specialty is creating native forests, but we're also experienced in planting small, medium and large commercial woodland.

Since our humble beginnings we have planted more than 5 million trees. Over time, we have acquired relevant and extensive experience in woodland creation, restock, soft landscaping and maintenance work.

Our teams, led by the example of their experienced and tireless foremen, are competent and qualified. Our planters are trained to the best quality of planting, and always work efficiently, safely and speedily.

We have multiple planting teams working in different locations. We provide them with transportation and accommodation guaranteeing them the maximum flexibility and speed in moving from one planting site to the next. These operations have been carried out in Ireland, England and Scotland. 

Our goal has always been to create environmental and social benefits around the world: we want to generate ethical, green jobs and help to establish or restore natural habitats. 




Replanting the worlds forests, one step at a time. We plant in areas where the timber has been harvested and the land needs a professional touch to re-grow and re-stock.
