Crann – Trees for Ireland welcomes the announcement from Mr. Andrew Doyle T.D., Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, of the opening of three new support measures to support biodiversity of Irish forests. These are:
- A new scheme to support ‘Continuous Cover Forestry’, (CCF), which allows for the production of commercial timber while retaining forest cover at all times:
- A new Deer Tree Shelter and Deer/Hare Fencing Scheme which aims to support land owners who wish to plant broadleaves in areas where there is a risk of deer damage;
- Changes to the Woodland Improvement Scheme (WIS) to introduce grant aid to carry out a second thinning intervention for broadleaf forests.
Further details on the scheme can be found at
