NUI, Galway Quad Trees 

Welcome to the NUIG tree website. Within these pages, you can find out about the various types of trees located around the perimeter of the University Quad.

Over 100 trees have been labelled with QR codes and there is an individual webpage for each tree. Browse the Maps or Lists menus to locate specific trees that you are interested in.

If you are the owner of a smart phone, you can use your phone to access detailed information about any tree you spot while walking around. The QR code will take you to historical photographs of that tree so that you can see the tree’s colour, seeds and fruits at various times of the year.
