Coillte's Dublin Mountains Forests; A Woodland for our Future

Closes 11 Oct 2019

Consultation Contents

Here you can read about our plans for each of the forests in the Dublin Mountains, both in terms of our forest operations and the recreational activities planned. We'd love you to tell us how you currently use the forests and what you think of our plans.

You can choose to read and interact with all of the forest pages or just one - it's up to you. And if you want to hear more from us in future about the forests, you can leave us your details in the 'About you' page and we'll send you more information as plans develop.

 

Due to their proximity to Dublin city, nine Coillte forests account for the vast majority of visits to the Dublin Uplands (Ticknock, Barnaslignan, Carrigolligan, Kilmashogue, Ballyedmonduff, Massy’s Wood, Hell Fire, Cruagh and Tibradden). These forests are currently managed by Coillte’s forest planning systems as commercial forests, however given their exceptionally high visitor and recreational usage and Coillte’s positive experience with the Dublin Mountains Partnership, Coillte has taken the decision to gradually convert these forests with the primary purpose of recreation and biodiversity.


Conversion from commercial forests to recreational forests will involve a mixture of continuous cover forestry (CCF) and removal of commercial species and replacement with non-commercial native tree species. The project is being jointly funded by Coillte and the DMP with grants for native woodland conversion being provided by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
