In 2018, Nangle and Niesen held an open day where attendees were drawn from both the public and private sectors with local authorities, landscape architects, garden designers, and landscape contractors all well represented.
Ronan Nangle led the nursery tours with visits to the fields to see the amenity and ornamental stock, their multi-stems and newer plantations, and the mature specimens.
Practical demonstrations included the process of lifting and rootballing trees, lifting of bareroot trees with an examination of the vitally important fibrous root systems, and correct tree-care techniques.
Discussions centered on the importance of correct nursery practices like transplanting, effective pruning, and overall crown development. A key driver of debate was the importance of correctly specifying trees and the merits of Irish-grown trees for Irish conditions over European imports.
Lunch each day was centered around the barbecue with venison burgers from their own deer stock with organic salad from nearby Robinsons organic farm, Toons Bridge mozzarella, and local Mealagulla orchard apple juice and cider.
