The Forestry Development Department, Teagasc will highlight its extensive advisory, research and training services at the Irish Forestry, Woodland & Bio Energy Show 2017.

Teagasc will have its own marquee and demonstration area where forestry advisers, researchers and specialists will be available over the two days to answer your questions on how best to incorporate a forest into your farm and to provide on the spot management advice.

Particular focus this year will be on the benefits of planting trees on the farm. Options range from native woodland initiatives to productive conifers, as well as agroforestry and forestry for fibre options.

See the latest research on tree breeding, conifer and broadleaf silviculture, site classification and on how best to prepare your forests for thinning, harvesting and marketing.

Teagasc’s Education Department will be there highlighting forestry courses and training available.

Teagasc will be running free competitions over the two days of the show to promote our Teagasc Forestry e-newsletter.

We look forward to seeing you there!
