The Treevolution has begun!


Here is a load of apple trees we phantom planted a couple of years ago in East Belfast, unfortunately lots of them got ripped out but still 2 are standing strong!


I remember when I first started phantom planting around council estates lots of people thought I was mad saying they would get ripped out by kids and the council but I never listened, how are we ever going to achieve anything in life if we dont try!


The way I looked at it also was I had just broken free and escaped my addictions, I used to spend hundreds of pounds a week on drink and drugs and now I'm going to spend what money I used to spend on poisoning me on planting fruit trees for nature and the community, from self gratification to selfless service, the antidote for the soul...


If some dont make it I will just keep planting more and more, I'm not going to loose any sleep over trees that dont make it.


I cant let this get in the way of my intentions, dreams and visions, they can always be replaced, it was better spent on a tree than in the bar anyway and no tree I've ever phantom planted was a waste of my time or energy, 2 trees that got vandalised before ended up connecting me to some of the best friends I have in my life right now!


With this attitude and approach I now have thousands of fruit trees around Belfast and beyond with the community and natures creatures enjoying the fruits of my labour everyday!


Such a great feeling when someone comes over to you and said they made a pie from the fruit of your phantom planted trees!


All this from drink and drug money, I have a soul purpose now, I never had that in the rat race!

I challenge you to phantom plant a tree! Anywhere, anytime, any place.....
