The Woodland Festival 2022

The Woodland Festival is organised by the Western Forestry Co-op and funded by the Forestry Division of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and supported by Masonite Ireland. 

This event aims to foster a greater awareness of the benefits of trees and woodlands, to focus on woodland management and the amenity aspects of our woods as well as the use of wood in furniture, crafts and building.

The day will include live woodland demonstrations in thinning, woodland improvement, sawmilling, timber tasks, wood chipping, beekeeping, chainsaw operators and carving, small scale timber extraction and bushcraft skills.

There will be woodland walks & talks, woodland games, information stands, wood products, food, crafts, family entertainment and much more.

There will be something for everyone at the Woodland Festival 2022. Why not come along!
