Forestry Participation at the Crops Open Day26 June 2019 26 June 2019
Venue Teagasc, Oak Park, Co. Carlow
The Teagasc Forestry Department will be promoting trees on the farm whether for general small scale tree planting or grant aided forest. The main question they will be asking tillage farmers is ‘is there room for trees’ on their farm.
The benefits of planting trees will also be discussed as well as the forestry grants that are available which often cover the cost of planting with an additional premium of between €510- €665/ha/yr for 15 years.
