Forestry Advisory Clinics: 7 Nov - 6 Dec 2017

Make your marginal land work for you

View full details of the upcoming Forestry Advisory Clinics 

The final round of the current nationwide series of Forestry Advisory Clinics will take place between 7 November and 6 December promoting the establishment of forestry as a sustainable and rewarding land use on Irish farms.

These clinics will be held in Teagasc offices around the country on specific dates, from 10 am to 4 pm each day, where a one-to one consultation with an experienced forestry adviser can be arranged by appointment.

The Forestry Programme offers landowners many options in relation to forest establishment with a range of attractive grants and annual premium categories available.

A land use change to forestry, like any new farm enterprise, will raise many questions. A consultation with your Teagasc forestry adviser will provide independent and objective advice, empowering you to make informed decisions on many relevant issues including the following: 

  • Opportunities for farmers and other landowners under the Forestry Programme 2014-2020
  • Available grants and premiums
  • Interaction with other farm schemes, e.g. BPS, GLAS, etc.
  • How forestry can improve farm income and the environment
  • How to apply and get the job done right first time

The forestry programme also offers landowners, who are not farming, the opportunity to avail of the same annual planting premiums as farmers.

Prior booking of a one to one forestry consultation is essential. To book your free consultation, please see below for contact details. Please bring maps and other relevant information on the day to optimise the advisory experience and outcome.

These clinics provide an ideal opportunity to get answers to your forestry questions – don’t miss it!
