Continuous Cover Forest Policy

by

Cathy Fitzgerald has just blogged about the The Green Party in Ireland who have just launched it’s Forest Policy (read the press release here).  This new Policy argues that

“Ireland’s public forests are at a point where, non clearfell, continuous cover forest systems need to be introduced and supported to fully realise the full long term economic, environmental and amenity values of Ireland’s forests.”

Helen Mayer Harrison and Newton Harrison would, we are sure, endorse this – it’s the sort of Policy that they were proposing in amongst other works, the Serpentine Lattice.

    Hi Chris

    Many thanks for your regular posts which I invariably find interesting.

    I wonder if you would mind sending out a link to the paper on folk music and geopoetics by David Francis which he gave to our recent AGM?  I think it’s one of the best expressions of what geopoetics is about, especially in relation to his own creative practice as a musician. http://www.geopoetics.org.uk/2013/05/as-i-roved-out-a-folk-musician-and-geopoetics-a-talk-by-david-francis/.

    It would also be a great help if you could include a link to the second issue of our online journal Stravaig on the theme Coast to Coast which also contains some wide-ranging essays and poems which might be of interest to your readers. http://www.geopoetics.org.uk/online-journal-stravaig/stravaig-issue-2/.

    It’s now possible to receive my Geopoetics Newsletter mailings direct from our website by filling in the box there.  If you’ve any news of forthcoming conferences, events or articles which might be of interest to our mailing list please let me know.

    Many thanks for your assistance.
