A nationwide series of 38 forestry clinics for people who are considering planting forestry on the farm has been organised by Teagasc’s Forestry Development Department.
Two of these clinics will take place in the North west with one in Donegal and one in the Sligo/Leitrim area.
Tomorrow, January 29th, a clinic will be held in Ballybofey at the Teagasc Office. For more information call 074 9131189.
The Leitrim / Sligo clinic will take place at the Mohill Teagasc office on Wednesday, January 30 and can be contacted on 071 9631076
Dr. Nuala Ni Fhlatharta, head of Teagasc’s Forestry Development Department said: “The first step in making an informed decision on forestry as an enterprise is to become familiar with the issues involved. Planting land can have many attractions, but you need to know if it is appropriate for you. Teagasc can provide the information, experience and advice necessary to assist in the decision making process.”
Farmers and landowners considering the merits of a forestry enterprise are invited to attend these free clinics in local Teagasc offices throughout the country. They will provide a great opportunity to avail of a one-to-one consultation with an experienced Teagasc forestry adviser.
Clinics will take place between 10am and 4pm. Prior booking is essential.
