Preparations start for the first new native woodland in the Dublin Mountains Makeover

We're preparing the ground for the first new native woodland in the Dublin Mountains Makeover. In the coming days, visitors to Ticknock will notice foresters with machines 'mounding' the site - this means creating small piles of soil in which to plant the young trees - and putting up fencing to keep the hungry deer out.

Mounding and fencing are essential steps in the creation of a new native woodland. In early December, we'll be planting a range of tree species including birch, Scots pine, oak, rowan and holly.

We're putting up signage on site to explain what we're doing, but you can also view it here.
