Green Belt feature in the Farmers Journal

Ireland has an obligation to address it carbon footprint. One of the best ways to achieve this, is to plant tree's. A mixed and diverse selection of softwoods and hardwoods will capture and retain carbon for generations, even in the material that is ultimately produced from these woodlands. As part of the country's commitments to reduce carbon, we need to consider so many aspects of the way we carry out our lives and business. Considering the use of Cross Laminate Timber (CLT) in the construction trade to replace the heavy dependency on concrete is a realistic, attractive, viable and cost saving alternative - and a wonderful way to improve the private forestry market in Ireland. Please see related editorial featuring in the Farmers Journal next week. And to understand the life cycle of forestry in brief, you can watch this short video.
