Survey of Forest Owners with Woodlands Managed Using Low Impact Silvicultural Systems (LISS) / Continuous Cover Forestry (CCF)

The COFORD Low Impact Silvicultural Systems (LISS) Project commenced in 2010 and is conducting research into the practice of LISS / Continuous Cover Forestry in Ireland

Amongst other objectives, the project is attempting to estimate the area of woodland in Ireland managed under such systems and to establish a database of such forests in Ireland This database will provide a summary of the techniques being used to convert stands to LISS / Continuous Cover and the responses of the stands (i.e. stability; regeneration, biodiversity etc.) to these interventions.

It is intended that a sample of forests identified in this survey will be visited and more detailed information on stand properties and LISS interventions recorded.

Please download Survey of Forest Owners with Wodlands Manged Using Continuous Cover Forest Management.pages and return to Áine Ní Dhubháin, Room 1.11, Agriculture and Food Science Centre,  UCD, Belfield, Dublin 4, or by email to aine.nidhubhain@ucd.ie.

If you have or manage more than one such forest please complete a separate page for each one. Woodlands of any size can be included in the survey.

Please feel free to forward this email to others who you know that are managing their woodlands/forests in this way.
