Forestry in Ireland
Make your land work for you!
In the current economic climate many farmers are facing challenging times. Less income and escalating costs from other farm schemes means that farmers have to work harder for less reward. Faced with such challenges, it seems timely that other farm enterprises are explored.
Over 16,000 farmers in Ireland have already made this decision and are seeing the benefits of the stable income forest premiums provide. On top of that they own a forest that is increasing in value every year.
And it's not just farmers who can benefit from the scheme. Farmers and Non-farmers are now eligible for the same rate, as a result of recent changes to the Affoestation scheme.
