Corporate Advisory Services

Veon is Ireland’s leading provider of forest consulting services. We deliver high-quality information, experience and consultancy services which add value to our clients.

As Ireland transitions towards a green economy, forests will have an increasingly important role in finding sustainable solutions for local and national problems. Veon is at the forefront in helping our clients to find such solutions, at both local and international levels.

Estate Management

Ireland has many historic estates and Veon has been appointed forest manager to the largest and most significant estates in the country including the Coollatin Estate, Coopers Hill Estate, Brownhall Estate, Kilcooley Estate, Annaghmore Estate, New Park Estate and the Perceval Estate among others.

Older estate woodlands provide owners with a significant irregular timber flow profile and differing species requirements which can prove challenging from a harvesting, marketing, financial, and logistical perspective. The age-class distribution of most planted forest estates is also usually irregular and combined with invasive species removal and replanting requirements in conjunction with overall estate plan objectives requires specialist technical knowledge and the best use of specialised software.

Irish Forestry Investment

Forests are characteristically long-term assets, and developing a profound understanding of forestry investment characteristics is critical to achieving success. Woodland appraisals and investment analyses help address this need, and attention to the assessment of existing tree crops and their estimated future performance is essential for accurate valuations and successful investment outcomes.

Forest Thinning, Harvesting & Clear-Fell

Veon has over 25 years’ experience in harvesting from first thinning through to clear-fell. We have developed robust and strong systems to control harvesting operations, maximising income generated from your plantation while ensuring that the plantation maintains its productive potential.

Forest Establishment

Irish forestry is at the core of Veon’s mission to protect and expand our forests and woodlands and increase their value for our clients, society and the environment. The development of the Irish forest industry has been a major success story and Veon’s commitment to planting new forests begins with careful selection of suitable land combined with our professional foresters’ knowledge and experience.
