Teagasc Forestry Development Department at the Tullamore Show

When? Sunday 12 August 2018

Where? Butterfield Estate, Blueball, Tullamore, Co Offaly

Forestry and Sustainable Living Section

Teagasc Forestry advisers explain the benefits of growing trees to landowners almost every day and yet there are many landowners who are still not familiar with the opportunity forestry can present.

The Forestry and Sustainable Living Section at the Tullamore Show will be a great opportunity to find out the benefits of planting trees; from the annual income, the grant which covers the costs; not to mention the growing asset, environmental benefits and many other opportunities growing woodland can present.

Organised by Teagasc’s Forestry Development Department, the Forestry and Sustainable Living Section at the show is composed of a large outdoor trade stand section. It will showcase all facets of Ireland’s rapidly developing farm forestry and renewable energy sectors.

Investing in forestry is rarely a choice between farming or not farming but rather an opportunity to invest in another enterprise which contributes positively to the whole farm business. New afforestation, thinning and wood energy will be highlighted at the Tullamore Show.

A wide range of organisations and companies will be present at the show this year; ranging from tree nurseries, forestry consultants and companies, state agencies, to firewood processors and other hi-tech machines. As the private forest industry continues to develop, it contributes more and more to our rural economy.

Call in to the Teagasc Forestry Development Department stand (Stand W439). Teagasc advisers and researchers will be on hand to assist on all forestry enquiries. It is a great opportunity to avail of free, comprehensive and up to date information on forestry and renewable energy as well as picking up a free forestry information pack!
