Progressive forestry event in Limerick
Pro Silva are delighted to announce the return of our popular Continuous Cover Forestry field days. The Autumn field day will be held on October 9th, 2021, from 11am to 4pm at Springfield Castle Estate, situated in the Golden Vale in Broadford, Co Limerick. The Castle Estate forest features 21.9ha of primarily broadleaf high forest of mixed species, but also includes plots of Sitka spruce. The forest was established in two phases in 1997 and 2001, with assistance of the Forest Service Afforestation Grant and Premium scheme. There is previous history of forestry at the estate and 150 years ago areas were recorded as mixed broadleaf woodland on OSI 1829-1842 map. More of the estate was shown as parkland and field day participants will see some sentinel trees from this time still scattered across the forest and in the estate.
