Forestry is one of the biggest and fastest growing industries in Ireland today, only some 10% of the Irish country side is Forested this being the second lowest in Europe.

This article on thejournal.ie covers this subject very well:

Ireland now has the β€˜second-smallest’ forest area in Europe

The Gallery below is of a Birch woodland near Huggins town county Kilkenny.

The foresters had been in and thinning the trees so that this area can develop into a wonderful open woodland space.

  3. Years and years ago when we (well maybe not you) only used black and white film, we were so excited to get the colored.
    Now I see the beauty of the black and white. Very satisfying.
