After the boom, Peadar Collins was left with a big challenge, as he had to figure out how to stay in business, combat a drop in sales and expand at the same time.

From a very young age, Peadar Collins of the Irish Tree Centre in Kildorrery, had a keen interest in plants and trees and this passion has been the guiding source for his business since 1996.

He knew that it was always something he wanted to pursue as a career and he studied for three years in the Salesian College of Horticulture in Meath.

"I like the idea that if I come up with something, I can make it happen and when you start your own business, you take the good with the bad, the success with the losses," Peadar said.
