Noteworthy.ie is an investigative platform by TheJournal.ie that crowdsources ideas for stories that are not currently being covered by the media, and crowdfunds in order to carry them out. One of our big proposals at the moment is focusing on tree cutting by local authorities.

Local authorities have been busy with their chainsaws, removing trees that have in some cases graced streets for decades. Concerns have been raised that the tree felling is happening because of fears over compensation claims from trips and falls.

We want to look nationwide at every local authority and see what destruction has taken place around the country.

We're halfway to funding this project and would love to get it over the line in order to begin the investigation.

We would really love to raise awareness of this project with your help, particularly among groups for whom it is particularly important. If you cannot contribute, we'd apprecaite any other way that you could spread the word.
