The Power of Forestry

The forestry sector in Ireland is growing rapidly each year. This is for many reasons, one of which is because of the continued demand for timber and wood products worldwide. The demand for pulpwood is growing rapidly as the use of bio-fuels is increasing in Ireland and abroad. People are becoming more economical and less reliant on fossil fuels as they are seeing how harming they are to the environment. Wood chipping/pellets/pulp are being used worldwide to produce energy instead of fossil fuels which is encouraging to see.

Weekly Update

Last week I was writing up my research project proposal. This consisted of a lot of information that I gained from studying from the couple of weeks previous. One thing I learned from the week is that there can never be enough trees planted in Ireland as I now understand all the benefits economically and environmentally for the country.
