About this Event

Clonad woodlands are managed for sustainable timber production and also to protect and enhance their biodiversity and other environmental features and to encourage and foster associated flora and fauna. There is a particularly wide diversity of tree species, ages and woodland types here with Oak, Ash, Birch, Alder, Willow, Beech, Maple, Sycamore, Hazel, Holly and Elder present along with a range of commercial conifers and other species. As an environmental/conservation measure no herbicides are used in Clonad.

On this woodland walk with Fiona Devery and Clonad foresters, ecologically important trees, plants and habitats will be highlighted and outlined including areas of highest ecological value, including our present woodland species and also looking at remnants of former woodlands and the shrub layer. Fiona will talk on woodland plant ecology and outline how these woodlands can contribute to the local ecology.
