Forestry Advisory Clinics

teagascpic2

Teagasc organized nearly 100 consultation days in January, February, and March with approximately 600 landowners benefiting from a one-to-one consultation with a Teagasc forestry adviser. These clinics focused on landowners who are considering forestry but the clinics also provided advice to landowners who already have a forest established.

Dr. Nuala Ni Fhlatharta, Head of Teagasc’s Forestry Development Department said “These Forestry Advisory Clinics provided by Teagasc forestry advisers was seen as a huge support to the farming sector, particularly to those considering forestry. By getting objective and independent advice from Teagasc, these landowners are now much better positioned to make a well-informed decision on where forests have a role to play on their farms. This information is essential so that forestry can be integrated with the rest of the farm thereby optimizing the return to the landowner.”

Forestry can have many attractions, but you need to know if it is appropriate for you. The unbiased information provided at these Forestry Advisory Clinics can help guide decisions about forestry as a viable enterprise and foster good management of existing forests.

If the demand for the clinics is anything to go by landowners are in agreement.
