You can earn up to €249/acre per annum for the next 15 years by planting forestry on your marginal land. This does not affect your Single Farm Payment which is eligible for new forestry land. Income from timber products can replace forestry grants after 15 years.
Forestry will provide you and your family with a generous income from timber revenue at thinning and clear-fell stages when the crop matures. Revenue from timber is income tax free. A professionally managed forest can earn you up to €40,000 p/annum over its crop rotation.
