Farm Woodlands has been involved in the Irish forestry industry since 1992, so if you are thinking of planting some land, no matter what size, we can help. Whether it’s for timber production or shelter, sporting use, habitat or landscape enhancement, we have the experience to put your ideas into action.
We are renowned for our personal, hands-on approach. We don’t delegate your project to sub-contractors and we value the relationships we have built up with our clients over the years.
Farm Woodlands has developed a 5-year management plan for landowners, where timber production is the main objective. We will establish your new woodland using the available grant aid and without hidden charges. Our contract relieves you of all the risks in creating the woodland and it provides you with the security of our complete service.
Our 5-year woodland planting & management plan includes –
As your woodland grows, we continue to offer advice on various aspects from the health status of the trees to wildlife control if necessary.
We also offer specialist services such as formative shaping and thinning; tree surveys; timber valuations and timber forecasts to ensure your woodland is an asset that grows in value as it enhances the environment.
We also carry out a range of generally smaller planting projects where timber production is not the main aim.
These include plots of 0.2 Hectare (½ acre) or less to increase farmland biodiversity under various agri-environment schemes.
We also plant new hedgerows and rejuvenate old hedges by coppicing and interplanting.
We plant new woodland for a large number of free-range and organic egg and poultry producers. For these clients, habitat enrichment for the birds is the main objective.
Allowing the birds to roam in a woodland environment encourages their natural behaviours and the trees help off-set the farm carbon emissions.
We also plant for clients who need environmentally sensitive shelter or screening as part of planning regulations.
