Forestry Advisory Clinics: Cavan & Monaghan

Forestry Clinics, 24 and 25 November 2016

Forestry advisory clinics for people who are considering forestry, or who are existing forest owners, has been organised by Teagasc’s Forestry Development Officer, Kevin O’Connell in counties Cavan and Monaghan this November. These one-to-one consultations are being held on Thursday 24 November in the Teagasc Office in Monaghan and on Friday 25 November in the Teagasc Office in Ballyhaise, Co Cavan.

The Forestry Programme 2014-2020 is now well underway and offers landowners new forest establishment options.
Landowners consider forestry for many reasons, such as supplementing farm income, farm restructuring or developing a retirement fund.

As forestry will be new to most landowners, it will present many questions. These Forestry Clinics are an ideal opportunity to flesh out the details of how a forest enterprise might work for you.

If you are already a forest owner, you are also welcome to come along to discuss forest management issues.

This one-to-one forestry appointment with a Teagasc forestry adviser will provide free, independent and objective advice, and can help you to address the following issues:

  • how a forest enterprise can improve farm and household income;
  • timber and non-timber benefits;
  • opportunities for non-farmers under the new forestry programme;
  • the effect of planting on other farm schemes, e.g., BPS, GLAS, AEOS; and,
  • how to get the job done right first time.

The Clinics will also present an opportunity for non-farmers who previously would have qualified for a lower ‘non-farmer’ premium.

Clinics will take place in the respective Teagasc offices between 10.00am and 4.00pm. Prior booking is essential. Please bring maps and other relevant information.

This is an ideal opportunity to get answers to your forestry questions – don’t miss it!
