Threats to Priority Woodland Habitats
Priority woodland habitats in Ireland have been threatened by a range of activities, including:
This project aims to address these threats by means of the following woodland restoration techniques:
The project actions are designed to achieve a significant improvement in woodland habitat quality. In the short term, the woodland restoration techniques concentrate on removing the threats to these habitats. The long term aim is to put in place the conditions which will allow priority woodland to regenerate in future years and provide a home for many native plant and animal species.
The public awareness results of the project will include the project brochure, this project website, and project signage at all nine sites, including detailed information panels at the three demonstration sites.
