It’s been a great couple of days for our forests across Ireland.
Yesterday 19 June 2013, the Irish government abandoned its plans to sell the harvesting rights of our public forests and today Northern Ireland has more protection for its woodlands and forests.
There is of course so much more to do, with how we manage, and develop permanent forests for the future but for the many thousands who signed petitions (over 48 000+ online), the thousands that came out on protests walks in our forests, the many groups, forest NGOs and politicians who raised their voices, well done all!
