Ash for Hurleys and for Profit
Dr. Jack Durand
The booklet highlights the shortage of ash for the purpose of producing the estimated 500,000 new hurleys required every year to service our national games. 60% of the ash required for hurleys is imported. As well as giving valuable information about the planting, protection and maintenance of this majestic tree, the book highlights the economic benefits to ash growers and encourages farmers to plant these trees as part of their farming activity.
