The Baronscourt Forestry ‘Log Blog’ 1

Brought to you by the Forestry Department

Welcome to the monthly Baronscourt Forestry ‘Log Blog’.  We hope to keep you updated and enthused on the management and processes of the dedicated work the team put into our extensive Continuous Cover Forestry in beautiful County Tyrone.  If you would like to read more on the history of our woodland click here

Here are a few images of the thinning operation which has been carried out in ‘Ashwood Cover’ this Summer.  As well as a couple of hundred tonnes of pretty average timber, we removed 14 large Western Hemlock which the photos show in various stages of felling, stacking, and loading for delivery to Balcas.

These trees were removed to make way for the next generation which has regenerated naturally under their canopy!
