Wexford Wood Producers are hosting a field trip to a member’s broadleaf plantation next Wednesday 14th May. We are meeting at the Horse and Hound Hotel, Ballinaboola at 4pm, from where we will visit the broadleaf site, discuss assessment of plantations, tree marking and high pruning. We will then join the Teagasc event in Whitechurch at 7pm focusing on the management of younger broadleaf plantations, including weed and pest control.
We hope you can join us!
Meeting at Delaney’s Bar, Freshford Road, Urlingford at 2pm. (Leaving from Freshford on the Urlingford Road, continue for 4 km and Delaney’s Bar is on the left hand side.) Visit to a recently thinned site followed by a harvesting demonstration with a modified head at The Islands, Urlingford.
