Farm Partnerships & Private Planting

Where can I find information about planting my own land with trees or about farm partnerships with Coillte?

Coillte have a new scheme for Farm Partnerships with private landowners known as Premium Partners.  Coillte Premium Partners is a new and innovative partnership that gives private forest owners the opportunity to earn an annual, fixed payment from their forests while retaining ownership of their land . You can find more information on the Premium Partners Scheme on this website. 

If you would like to plant your own land, the Forest Service run a number of Forest schemes such as the Afforestation Scheme, Forest Roads Scheme, Woodland Improvement (Thinning and Tending Scheme), Seed Stand and Seed Orchard Scheme, Neighbourwood Scheme and Native Woodland Conversation Scheme.
