What We Do

Coillte Nature is the not-for-profit branch of Coillte. We are building on 30 years’ experience in forestry, land management and habitat restoration to deliver real impact on the climate and biodiversity crises through innovative projects-of-scale across four strategic themes:  

  1. Afforesting our landscapes by planting new native woodlands on un-forested land 
  2. Restoring important biodiversity areas by investing in major habitat improvements 
  3. Regenerating urban forests for the benefit of people and nature 
  4. Rehabilitating ecosystem services by bringing sensitive or degraded lands into better health 

Our approach is underpinned by principles of partnership, integrity and accountability, informed by the best ecological evidence, and supported through collaboration and engagement with public, private, non-governmental and community partners. To qualify for consideration as a Coillte Nature initiative, proposed projects must be:

  • Of significant spatial scale and/or of benefit to large populations
  • Aligned to national biodiversity conservation objectives
  • Impactful in terms of climate mitigation and/or climate resilience
  • Supported by local representatives, communities and/or special interest groups
