The Forestry Development Department, Teagasc will highlight its extensive advisory, research, and training services at the Irish Forestry, Woodland & Bio Energy Show 2017. This year’s Show will take place on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 May 2017 at the Stradbally Hall Estate, Co Laois.

Teagasc will have its own marquee and demonstration area where forestry advisers, researchers, and specialists will be available over the two days to answer your questions on how best to incorporate a forest into your farm and to provide on the spot management advice.

A particular focus this year will be on the benefits of planting trees on the farm. Options range from native woodland initiatives to productive conifers, as well as agroforestry and forestry for fiber options.

See the latest research on tree breeding, conifer and broadleaf silviculture, site classification and on how best to prepare your forests for thinning, harvesting and marketing.

Teagasc’s Education Department will be there highlighting forestry courses and training available.

Information on the many Forest Owner Groups from all around the country will be present in the Teagasc Marquee with information on their activities and contact details on how to join up.

We look forward to seeing you there!
