You’ve created 40 Acres of Native Woodland in Roscommon
May 20, 2020
On World Bee Day, we feel it’s appropriate to share an update on our progress. Despite the upheaval from the Covid-19 pandemic, we are continuing to advance our native woodland planting with the support of our fantastic foresters and partners.
This beautiful site is located in Killultagh in County Roscommon, adjoining counties Mayo and Galway. You can see a Google Street View and map of the site here. Rather than planting the site now while the lockdowns are still active, we want to give our partners an opportunity to join in and get their collective hands dirty! Therefore, we’ve delayed planting until the autumn planting season begins later in 2020.
Our first priority is of course the health of our team, partners and supporters, so we very much hope the situation will have improved enough to enable us to continue with a planting day that everyone can participate in. Watch this space for updates! It’s important that we complete planting as soon as possible, so if we can’t run a planting day, we will complete all site works this autumn in any case.
The planting of native woodland is a key support for biodiversity and generates a myriad of other benefits such as the reversing of wider habitat fragmentation, the protection and enhancement of water quality, landscape, and cultural heritage.
Thank you all for your ongoing support – we look forward to seeing you on site soon!
