About Coillte’s Web Map
Coillte’s interactive web map viewer displays areas where proposed felling activity is scheduled to take place during 2021-2025, as outlined in our plans.
In the Map Viewer, stakeholders can send a snapshot of their area of interest, submit comments and suggestions on harvest blocks via an e-mail to email@example.com. BAU staff, if required, will engage in further discussion and give more details about the felling activity for the areas highlighted. Coillte then incorporate feedback, make changes if appropriate to Coillte’s plans and inform relevant stakeholders.
