Ticknock and Kilmashogue: The Dublin Mountains Makeover continues

The Dublin Mountains Makeover continues with felling operations due to take place in Kilmashogue and Ticknock over the next 6-8 weeks as part of our R&R (Remove and Replant) and CCF (Continuous Cover Forestry) plans.

R&R at Ticknock: 4.7 hectares of spruce will be felled in the coming weeks and replanted with native woodland over the winter.

CCF thinning at Kilmashogue: 20 hectares will be thinned to start the transformation to continuous cover forest.

This work is part of the Dublin Mountains Makeover which will see an area of over 900 hectares across nine Coillte forests transitioning from commercial forestry, to be managed for recreation, biodiversity and climate.

We thank you for your patience during this process. Please follow all signage and traffic management instructions while visiting the forest and please take care on the roads with timber lorries entering and exiting the forests. There may be temporary rolling detours in place for walkers and bikers.
