1. Welcome

We have recently thinned our commercial plantation and we are currently in a pilot scheme for FSC Forest Certification.

John Sherlock is a member of the

ITGA (Irish Timber Growers Association).

With 49 acres of forestry, a relatively young forest now in it’s 13th year, we are trying to put back what we take.

With a mixture of Sitka Spruce, Norway Spruce, Alder, and slow growing Beech and Oak trees for long-term commitment.

Please note:  There is a huge risk of Ash Dieback disease (Chalara fraxinea) in Ash plantations,

so please do not go through any plantation.

We at Sherlogs Firewood in Navan, have continued planting additions to the forest plantation started by the late Patrick Sherlock

So as well as being environmentally friendly, this has helped create a haven for wildlife with different forest flora and fauna.  Bringing a magical setting in the winter, and a cooling peace in the summer.

Member of the Irish Tree Growers Association

North East Forestry Group

John is also Chairman of the North East Forestry Group.

The Group was formed with the support of Teagasc in May 2013 and is open to forest owners in Cavan, Louth, Meath and Monaghan.

In addition, to our commercial plantations of Sitka Spruce, Norway Spruce, Oak and Alder we have planted Eucalyptus, Birch and some mixture of nature trees in a copse to provide natural shelter for our donkeys, Harry and Molly, and our small herd of sheep.

Thinning of forest plantations improves the stock of remaining trees while encouraging growth which in turn increases the amount of carbon stored.

We are currently members of Pro Silva Ireland which encourages continuous cover forestry, thus eliminating clearfell of forests.  By taking out a little more often, encourages natural regrowth of forestry.
