Teagasc to host Forestry Advisory Clinic in Dundalk
Teagasc has organised a nationwide series of personalised Forestry Advisory Clinics for later this month, with one to take place in their offices on the Dublin Road in Dundalk on Thursday January 24th.
The series has been organised to promote the establishment of forestry as a sustainable and rewarding land use on Irish farms.
It will take place from 10am to 4pm on the day.
The Forestry Programme offers landowners and existing forest owners many options in relation to forest establishment with a range of attractive grants and annual premium categories available.
Dr Nuala Ni Fhlatharta, Head of Teagasc’s Forestry Development Department said: “Landowners consider forestry for many reasons. That is why a land use change to forestry, like any new farm enterprise, will raise many questions.”
She added, “It is also a great opportunity for farmers to understand the requirements of the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) and other farm schemes before establishing a forest. These Teagasc Forestry Clinics are an ideal opportunity to flesh out the details of how forestry might work for you.”
