Minister of State Hayes announces Free Forestry Advisory Clinics - 20 TO 31 JANUARY 2014

Tom Hayes, TD, Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine with responsibility for forestry, today announced that Teagasc will hold a nationwide series of free forestry advisory clinics for people who are considering forestry or who are existing forest owners.

The advisory clinics, which are organised by Teagasc’s Forestry Development Department and supported by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, will offer one-to-one consultations with Teagasc forestry advisors. There will be 39 clinics in total and they will be held around the country between January 20th and 31st.

Minister Hayes said: “I believe that forestry is a viable land use option for many farmers and the strong demand for appointments at last year’s advisory clinics indicates the extent of interest among farmers and land owners in afforestation.”

The advisory clinics are also open to existing forest owners who may wish to discuss forest management issues or obtain practical advice on management, thinning and marketing timber.

As the clinics involve a one-to-one discussion with a Teagasc forestry development officer, anyone interested in attending must make an appointment in advance. Contact your local Teagasc office as soon as possible to arrange a suitable time.

Minister Hayes said: “For anyone who is considering forestry as an option on their farm, these free advisory clinics present an ideal opportunity to obtain independent and objective advice on how forestry might fit in with your farm enterprise”.
