Coillte is Ireland’s largest producer of roundwood, the raw material which our sawmill customers process into high quality timber. Sitka Spruce is our main commercial species and our annual production of 2.5 million cubic metres generates revenue of €120m.
Coillte’s four Nurseries produces 25 million bare rooted plants every year, most of which are used to renew our own forests. Our four nurseries are spread throughout the country and the 7 million plants not needed for our own planting and restocking are sold to other Irish forest companies, independent contractors, or companies and agencies.
High quality wind farms have been built on our lands, and as Ireland continues to promote new sectors such as solar, storage and biomass, Land Solutions ensures that we continue to be a key contributor to the re-shaping of Ireland’s renewable energy supply landscape.
