Work begins on a R&R (Remove and Replant with Native Woodland) site in Ticknock, as part of the second year of operations of the Dublin Mountains Makeover. Work will begin on Tuesday 12th January and will involve clearfelling 2.5ha of mature Sitka spruce and Corsican pine.

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 of the species mix for the new native woodlands, here’s a PDF of the signage we’re using on-site.
