Transformation to CCF: Case studies
In recent years, a number of private forest owners have begun transforming their plantations to continuous cover forests. In many cases, this is driven by a desire to integrate multiple objectives such as timber production, biodiversity, personal satisfaction and legacy.
Below are a number of case studies presenting the progress to date across a range of forest types and development stages:
- Liam Bresnan: Spruce and Oak mixture in Limerick approaching second thinning
- Paddy Gleeson: mixed broadleaf plantation in Clare at second thinning stage
- Peter Rose: Spruce, Douglas fir and Larch plantation in Carlow approaching third thinning
- Sandra and Lasse Jorgensen: Spruce, Sycamore and Larch plantation in Wicklow approaching fourth thinning
- Tŷ Rhŷg (Wales): Spruce plantation in Wales at more advanced regeneration stage development
