Grant aid is available for the construction of forest roads into plantations.
Conifer forests are eligible within 5 years of thinning, while broadleaf forests are eligible when they reach a height of 6 meters.
The profitable management of forests is dependent on having an excellent forest road network in place.
The maximum grant available is €40/linear meter of road constructed, which has prior approval from the Forest Service.

Forestry and the timber industry has been very much an under developed sector in Ireland and I feel this new website foresttomarket.ie is an ideal vehicle to help to promote and coordinate investors, farmers, auctioneers and all involved in the sector. I congratulate Paddy Bruton and all his team in Forestry Services Ltd. on this one-stop-shop website initiative and wish them every success in the future.

In an environment of historically low interest rates and bond yields; volatile and nervous equity markets; uncertain property markets; the investment options are not at all clear or straightforward at the moment. For any investor, diversification is key and in that context, forestry can play a very valuable role. This website will make a very valuable contribution to investors interested in sourcing this investment option.
