Boayl Curragh was planted in 1988 on the Black Mountain
above Tholt-y-Will Plantation and linked to it by a new forest
road. It is an exposed plantation of 68 hectares which is growing
very well. It consists of Sitka Spruce, Lodgepole Pine, Japanese
Larch and mixed broadleaves.
Ten hectares of boggy land in the centre of the site has been left unplanted for nature conservation.
