ProSilva Ireland Tree Marker Training 2020

Pro Silva Ireland is delighted to announce new 2020 dates for training on early transformation to CCF in Sitka spruce plantations. The course is now well established and has received strong positive feedback from previous participants. This is currently the only training course related to Sitka spruce plantation transformation in Ireland.


Dates:   Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 September 2020 (2 days)

Venue:  Community Hall and Private Forest at Kilteel, Co. Kildare


The course involves indoor and outdoor sessions over two days, with practical tree marking exercises in a specially prepared forest area (called a marteloscope). Participants will receive feedback on tree marking and will learn the difference between conventional early thinning in clearfell forestry versus tree selection for CCF management. The course is designed for foresters and “hands-on” forest owners who are taking their first steps in CCF management.
