THE HOLLYWOOD FOREST STORY – ONGOING SINCE 2008: An eco-social art practice and doctoral research for forests and the art & ecology field

Hollywood, a Close-to-Nature continuous cover forest growing under the Blackstairs Mountains, South County Carlow, Ireland. It is also the muse and site of my long-term (since 2008), transversal eco-social art practice.

The story of Hollywood forest tells how we are turning our small (2-acre) 24-year-old monoculture conifer plantation into an ecologically & economically sustainable continuous cover FOREST.

It is an ongoing transversal eco-social art practice; told in images, short films & conversations between myself, Close-to-Nature foresters, our local community & online audiences.


On this page I have two sections:

  • My posts in chronological order on transforming Hollywood forest since 2008 using new-to-Ireland continuous cover forestry management
  • Posts on how I have shared The Hollywood Forest Story in exhibitions, talks, conferences and articles
