Forestry Workshops 2021
A new forest – getting started
Connect with your local forestry advisor to learn about starting a new forest by registering for three informal workshops to build your knowledge.
Registrations are closed.
See the table below for details of dates for these local events.
The Teagasc Forestry Development Department is organising local online workshops to enable landowners to gain an understanding of what a new forest can offer, learn what’s involved and how to get started in the planting process. These sessions will be held through Zoom.
During February and March, landowners can log into three one-hour online workshops. We would encourage you to attend all three sessions as different areas will be covered.
Session 1 – Benefits of forestry
In this session, landowners can hear about the potential benefits for forests and set their own objectives when considering their potential forest site and future plans.
Session 2 – Working through a case study
In this session, the presenter will bring the attendees through the process of deciding what forest type might suit a particular site specific to the geographical area, through a practical exercise.
Session 3 – How to get started
The practical steps involved in getting organised to plant is the subject of the third session, including: grant eligibility; grant structures and rates; interaction with other farm schemes; and, engaging a forester.
Following registration, you will be emailed a link to access the workshop sessions. This link will be sent to the email address provided a few days prior to the first session. This will allow you to attend each session, which will consist of a presentation by a local forestry development officer and will also allow you take part in an informal discussion.
It is recommended that you attend your 'local' event, as discussions will be more relevant to the location of your forest site.
