Hi All,

I know a financier who will set up an Irish Carbon Credit Fund for native Irish species. Ireland was nearly completely covered by decidious forests, I hope ye will help me and others bring some of them back. The mountains and peatlands are my target areas. It could also be applied to the shooting areas of Britain where there is just heather and the forests have been felled for that.

Any advice or action would be gladly welcome with reference to feasibility, grants, permissions, sapling cost and any thing else.

Thanks,

Peter Kelly

I have the support of a financier and a senior legal professional.

First off this is another myth like the Esker riada, Ireland was never nearly covered in decidious forests wheres the proof.

I only know of Seán O' Riada. You can't spell gauge correctly I think this fact and the time of night might be bringing some negativity. Those solutions are for lemmings. Life is precious and you could utilitate your time better. I like market gardening not importing invasive species. Financiers are not all bad plus now their on the back foot. I hope you read this comment. Any other comments?

I'm not trying to win over the masses Sunny. I'm merely using my initiative to leave the earth in a better state than which we found it. It's an ethical project. Does it make sense to you?

Any advice or action would be gladly welcome with reference to feasibility, grants, permissions, sapling cost and any thing else.

Coillte said information is located at: http://www.agriculture.gov.ie/forestservice/

Guess its too late to go looking for acorns.

It would be invigourating, healthy, strategic, profitable and above all reforestation.

also, it's a bit rich calling other people on their spelling when your signature contains two spelling mistakes.

my signature reads on my system Greengage google it for further info. It took me weeks to come up with that one.
Maybe if your going to save the world you could be a little out of your (death, depth, dept), ok over your head.
In relation to the acorns why not ask the financier for some seed capital to get you started.......

Greengage. The financier said he would establish the fund because it generates carbon credits, he thinks its a brilliant idea and a good legacy. He is not a Dermot Desmond type financier he is a professional financial engineer at the highest level. I' ll talk to him some more about it. He is very busy. As for seed capital..... this is like venture capital and it requires a high return. Enterprise Ireland give seed capital. But hey all it is is growing sapings. I saw in the third world that they reforest for a few cents per sapling. What I should have done was collected all the Irish Acorns and grown them in my acre. I could probably find potting bags on the internet and I have compost. This creates value but good advice and another few people might be the best way to go because its a start.

Medevil Kenevil. I have contacted Coillte and Woods of Ireland. Financier is very busy.

Any comments or ideas or proaction. There is an African proverb that says "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago"

this is a great site very funny, great humour. I feel sure the people who responded to it believed it was serious. It takes all types to make a good contribution and this is good reaction. Many of these financiers do a lot of good and plant a lot of trees themselves on their own land.

I am not acting in jest. The financial engineer said he would establish a fund for it. It is so difficult to do anything off your own back in this country with getting stomped by political gesturing, biligerence and inertia. Usually the problem is solved way too late if at all.

I got a response from: Woodlands of Ireland" and will contact Crann and the Forest Service.

Alot of land has no trees(especially now) and the conifers are just pulp and low value.

Michael Brenock: Can you use your years of experience, knowledge and contacts so I can plant some native broadleafs as saplings somewhere as a start? Or what do you advise?

Any ideas how to get this project off the ground?

Any more comments?

Sorry I'd like to add that barriers to good ideas meet opposition around the world. Ireland is home and some of the best attributes of any country especially its people and landscape. There have been some magnificent results from well thought out ideas, opportunity and perseverance.

This carbon credit fund specialising in native broadleafs has the backing of a "financial engineer at the highest level" and a senior legal person/lobbist. Its off to a magnificent start.

Any input at all is welcome no matter how small or critical.
