The Dublin Mountains Makeover will see an area of over 900 hectares across nine Coillte forests transition away from the clearfell and replanting cycle towards a different model: a combination of Continuous Cover Forestry (CCF) and remove and replant with native species (R&R). Work started on the Dublin Mountains Makeover in June 2020.
