A new native woodland designed for habitat, with the added benefit of protecting a sensitive watercourse from run-off pollution. Public access will be maintained. The project is the fruit of a partnership between Microsoft, Natural  Capital Partners, Forest Carbon and Greenbelt, and was developed under  the sustainable forestry standards of the Irish Forest Service and  adhering to the principles of the UK Woodland Carbon Code.
