Woodlands of Ireland addresses key tasks through the development and implementation of projects. Some of these are minor projects that are completed within one or two years. Other projects are large and may span many years. To date, Woodlands of Ireland has been central in two key projects that aim to meet its objectives. They are;
- The development of a millennium project on native trees and woodlands, which resulted in the People’s Millennium Forests (PMF) project, and
- The development of a primarily conservation-oriented scheme targeted specifically at native woodlands that would be open to public and private owners. This has led to the new ‘Native Woodland Scheme’ (NWS), which was further developed, launched and administered by the Forest Service of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.
