In 1966 Jim McClelland sold his farm and emigrated to Australia. This farm was purchased by the Forestry Commission and planted with conifer in 1969. These trees were harvested in 2001/02 and the land was planted with native species, oak, ash alder and willow. It is intended that this will become a nature reserve. When the trees mature, it should provide a nice autumn view across Killylackey Lough from the road and will complement the other nature conservation ideas the Killyfole and District Development Association hope to implement just over the hill around Killyfole Lough.
