Don't sell off large parts of rural Ireland to corporate investment funds
Do not sell large tracts of land to international corporates and vulture funds who are only interested in making fast profits from destroying nature and our beautiful countryside. Ireland needs more native woodlands and sustainable forestry, not more mass plantations.
Why is this important?
Rural Ireland needs balanced afforestation that protects communities, farmers and biodiversity. Large scale corporate owned plantations will accelerate the destruction of livable communities and nature.
