Stakeholders are able to view more detail,  and send their comments/queries on those felling proposals to Coillte’s team, using Coillte’s Web Map (see below)

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 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.
