Microsoft at Froe

The new woodland at Froe will buffer local watercourses and minimise pollution run-off from agicultural activity, as well as providing habitat  for flora and fauna. The site is close to Rosscarberry and 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.
