“A comprehensive and in-depth conference on Ireland’s native woodlands will take place over two days, from April 30th to May 1st 2018 at the Glenview Hotel, Delgany, Co. Wicklow. The event is titled ’20 Years A-Growing’ and has been organised by Woodlands of Ireland to celebrate two decades of work to restore, manage and create new native woodlands in Ireland. Anyone with an interest in native woodlands – including landowners, farmers, the forestry industry, academics and environmental communities – is encouraged to attend.
Presentations by leading Irish and international experts will cover a wide range of topics, from managing native woodlands and hedgerows to flood management and woodlands for water protection, while panel discussions will focus on the steps that should be taken to ensure Ireland meets its ambitious targets to plant and restore native woodlands over the next three years. Other topics will include the recent arrival of the great spotted woodpecker, spiders and other invertebrates from native woodlands, invasive species and climate change, seed saving, deer ecology and rewilding.”
