Maintenance works at Kilbarry Nature Park

Over the coming weeks (15/01/24 – 09/02/24) we will be carrying out management and maintenance works at Kilbarry Nature Park, including the clearance of vegetation from the side slopes.

The purpose of the same is to implement a maintenance programme to ensure establishing trees are permitted sufficient space and not hampered by aggressive growing and fast colonising vegetation such as gorse and briars. This is in line with best practices for tree establishment in the Forestry and Landscape Guidelines.

20-meter sections will be cleared of gorse, briars and other aggressive vegetation shall be controlled with strategically planted trees being maintained. Works will be completed in advance of the nesting season under Section 40(1) (a) of the Wildlife (Amendment) Act 2000.
