Forestry in demand with FEL at the 2015 NPA



Ireland’s leading forestry company, Forest Enterprises Ltd. (FEL), reported a strong interest in forestry at the 2015 National Ploughing Championships.  Landowners are increasingly aware of the benefits of forestry as a stable, tax-free source of income supported by a number of government schemes and grant aid.  Forestry is a growth industry in Ireland, with premiums of up to €249 per acre for 15 years now available under the Government’s new forestry scheme. The scheme is open to farmers and non-farmers alike, and allows farmers to retain their full single farm payment.

The planting season is now open, and FEL are working with clients throughout Ireland to establish new forests. Working with a FEL Forester to manage your plantation, including thinning, can help to increase the yield and profitability of forestry assets. For more information on forestry management, call FEL on 1800 719 399 or email info@nullfel.ie to arrange a meeting.
