Great to see ProSilva Ireland’s* message about Close-to-Nature, non clearfell, continuous cover forestry is getting great press and TV coverage.

ProSilva Ireland wishes to thanks the Brabazon family at Knockrath Co. Wicklow for an important ProSilva Ireland field day.
We were fortunate to have Duncan Stewart and the EcoEye team record some of the day’s discussions for an upcoming EcoEye TV programme and Donal Magner, Forestry Editor for the Irish Farmers Journal wrote the following article (click the image to download the article as a pdf). Our guest forester Heinrich Joost Bärwald from ProSilva Germany also added valuable European Close-to-Nature forestry insight to advance the discussions during the day.
