Forestry & the National Heritage: A Review of the Heritage Council's Forestry Policy 2008

Forestry & the National Heritage: A Review of the Heritage Council's Forestry Policy 2008

Climate Change and Renewable Energy Natural Heritage & Biodiversity /

This review of Heritage Council forest policy was carried out by a team of six foresters and ecologists at the request of Woodlands of Ireland. The review was carried out by collating and analysing published, grey, and oral information relevant to forest management in Ireland.

The emphasis of the study was on science-based knowledge, but the team also drew on its considerable collective experience of working in the forestry sector. Submissions were sought from all interested parties, and a public meeting was held to present draft conclusions followed by a discussion.

Climate Change and Renewable Energy Natural Heritage & Biodiversity /

The recommendations in this report seek to ensure the identification, protection, preservation and enhancement of the national heritage within the context of the Heritage Council's Strategic Plan.

Forestry has considerable potential to enhance Ireland’s biological and landscape diversity, offering aesthetic and amenity benefits while safeguarding our existing heritage and providing real economic benefit to local communities. However, it also has the potential to cause considerable damage to Ireland’s heritage.
