Teagasc Forestry Events for 2013

Teagasc’s Forestry Programme of Events for 2013 promises to be of great interest to new and existing forest owners. The Programme of Events listed below will be updated regularly so keep an eye on the Teagasc Forestry website: www.teagasc.ie/forestry for up-to-date event details where you can subscribe to our new e-Newsletter service to have event details emailed to you. You can also follow us on Twitter @teagascforestry for the latest forestry news.

Nuala Ni Fhlatharta, Head of Teagasc’s Forestry Development Department said: “In 2013, Teagasc will focus on promotion and training in relation to afforestation, forest management and thinning. It will see a continuation of the development of Forest Owner Groups and timber supply chains around the country. Forestry advisers will advise and support forest owners in building knowledge around forest management, thinning and developing structures to harvest and market their timber. Ongoing promotion of the Afforestation and Native Woodland Schemes will continue. A specific nationwide programme of awareness and promotion will be undertaken in early spring to promote forest establishment.”

All Teagasc Forestry events are organised in association with the Forest Service, Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.
