Forestry Research

Farm forestry has increased in importance over the last twenty years, resulting in a demand for knowledge and solutions at farm level.

Teagasc has responded to this increasing demand by expanding its forestry research programme and resources. There are currently several forestry researchers and forestry technicians dedicated to the forestry research programme. It covers research on silviculture, tree improvement and quantification of forest materials to optimise market outlets and is based at Teagasc, Athenry; Teagasc, Ashtown and Teagasc, Kinsealy.

In addition, the Teagasc forestry development officers are instrumental in facilitating the research programme by interacting with land owners and identification of local resources and problems. The majority of the research is conducted in privately owned farm forestry plantations.
