Coillte NIS project

Since July 2020, MKO has provided ecological services to Coillte CGA to accompany their tree felling license applications, which are relevant to a wide variety of forest operations carried out in Ireland, including but not limited to, clearfell and reforestation, Thinning, and Continuous Cover Forestry (CCF). These proposed forestry operations are the subject of an Article 6(3) Screening Assessment and a Natura Impact Assessment, in line with Articles 6(3) and 6(4) of the Habitats Directive (Directive 92/43/EEC).

Project challenges

MKO’s dedicated Forestry team provide inputs into many aspects of this project and, in conjunction with the Coillte Ecology team, completes high-quality Appropriate Assessment Screening Reports (AASRs) and Natura Impact Statements (NISs), as well as decides on the appropriate forestry-specific mitigation for the proposed works to ensure protected European sites are not impacted during the works. MKO has extensive knowledge of the ecological, environmental and planning issues associated with the forestry sector and provides services that ensure regulatory and legal requirements can be met in a timely and cost-effective manner.
