A project to create woodlands to capture carbon has been established by the state forestry company. Coillte said that the new native woodlands would be used as public amenities, improve biodiversity and sequester carbon. This is the process by which CO2 is taken in by trees and other plants and stored in their trunks, branches, roots and leaves. The forestry company also said that nine commercial forests around Dublin would be redesignated for recreational use. They are Ticknock, Barnaslingan, Carrickgollogan, Kilmashogue, Ballyedmonduff, Massey’s Wood, Hellfire, Cruagh and Tibradden.
