The objective of this project is to convert marginal and degraded grazing land into a new woodland that will capture CO2 and provide a high quality habitat for local flora and fauna. The proximity of the site to Castletownshend will also enable public access to the site.

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.
