Visiting Ticknock? Look out for our first R&R site as part of the Dublin Mountains Makeover

Last month, we started the first of our CCF (Continuous Cover Forestry) operations in the Dublin Mountains by thinning an area of forest in Ballyedmonduff.

Now, we’re undertaking our first R&R (Remove and Replant with native woodland) in Ticknock. The works begin on Monday 13th July and will involve clearfelling two small areas of forest:

  • The first is an area of trees that have blown over in the wind near the upper car park (northern section in purple, below).
  • The second is an area of Sitka spruce forest along the road to the Red Barn (narrow southern section in purple, below).

It will last for approximately 3 weeks. The trails in the area will remain open for most of the time, however temporary closures may be necessary when felling is taking place close to the roads. Please follow safety signage and Coillte staff directing traffic.

For more information on how we’re using R&R in Ticknock and detail on the species mix for the new native woodlands, here’s a PDF of the signage we’re using on-site.
