Depending on the size of your forest, it may be more cost effective for this re-fertilisation to completed by helicopter. Please note aerial fertilisation of forest plantations can only be undertaken after an aerial fertilisation licence has issued from the Forest Service. This is required under S.I. No. 592 of 2006 and S.I. No. 790 of 2007, European Communities (Aerial Fertilisation) (Forestry)(Amendment) Regulations 2007. It is an offence to carry out aerial fertilisation of a forest without a valid licence. Your local co-op forester can advise you on whether this is necessary and the process involved.
