The Neighbourwood Scheme supports the development of attractive amenities for public use, suitable for public or private landowners in partnership with local communities. Dunmore East, Co. Waterford was restored and developed into a vibrant amenity for people to reconnect with the natural world. This project was funded by the Forest Service and made possible by Forester Tommy Enright, Forestry Services Ltd.
As a dairy farmer, I had little interest in forestry until I purchased land with milk quota in the mid-1990s. Both the milk quota and the forestry have proven good investments. I engaged Forestry Services Ltd to secure the necessary felling licences, construct forest roads and thin the plantations in 2008. The plantations have been second thinned and I am happy with the work that was done and the returns I received from the thinning. I am looking forward to the clearfell and my only regret is that I haven’t got more forestry
