Our farm has 13 acres of young native woodland: 60% Irish oak, 20% ash, 20% shelterbelt planting to protect the other trees from the wind (mainly alder and scots pine), including 1 section which was reserved for trees sourced from ancient Irish woodlands. These oak and hazel trees were grown from seeds sourced from Ballyseedey woodlands, and another ancient woodlands just outside Macroom. The bottom left hand section of our woodland is planted exclusively with these hazel trees.
