Woodland plan aims to inspire Faughan Valley farmers


The team planning Northern Ireland's biggest woodland creation scheme want to show farmers how to transform unproductive pockets of land into thriving woodland.

Faughan Valley Landscape Partnership Scheme has joined forces with the Woodland Trust to offer a free woodland creation demonstration for farmers and landowners in the Faughan Valley.

The free demonstration will start on Wednesday, November 13, at 2pm at the RAPID premises, located at the Old School, 2 Foreglen Road, Killaloo.

A bus will transport the group to a nearby private landowner's site, where forester Tony Johnston will demonstrate tree-planting, choice of tree species for different terrains, ground preparation and use of tree guards.

The woodland creation day is free and includes refreshments. Booking in advance is essential. Contact Jonathan Henderson on 028 7133 7498; mobile 0771 869 4172; or email
