Description

Teagasc, in association with the DAFM is organising a broadleaf event focusing on the management of ash. This event provides an excellent opportunity for broadleaf owners to see at first hand best methods and practices for the thinning of an ash crop. Teagasc researchers and advisers will highlight

  • the management of ash
  • management options for ash dieback
  • thinning systems,
  • timber production
  • various timber uses

Dr Ian Short, broadleaf forestry researcher with Teagasc will discuss a range of felling systems and thinning intensities on the day.

All forest owners with broadleaves and in particular ash are encouraged to attend.

The woodland tour will take approximately 2.5 hours. Please bring raingear and wellington boots as all footwear will be disinfected.
