Western Forestry Co-op Office moved to Aurivo Mart Ballinrobe
Western Forestry Co-op (est 1985 by the main dairy co-ops in the West of Ireland to provide a back up service to farmers going in to forestry) have moved the Mayo office from Kiltimagh to the Aurivo Mart in Ballinrobe.
After 18yrs in Kiltimagh (formerly managed by Patricia Dillion and Tom Staunton who retired in 2013) it was a big decision to move but so far a good decision and for farmers already going to the mart on a Wednesday it is great for them to be able to call in to discuss any forestry matters.
Colm Freyne, Co-op forester (087-6606043) is our resident staff member at Ballinrobe. Colm graduated from WIT in 2014 with a BSc in Forestry and joined Western Forestry Co-op to manage our afforestation, forest roads and forest management in Roscommon and Galway. A native of County Galway, Colm is also a keen farmer and committed hurler in his spare time. Colm is based in our Ballinrobe office at the Aurivo Mart. Colm is a technical member of the Society of Irish Foresters.
He is very passionate about forestry and will advise you on the options that are best suited to your own farm enterprise having had direct experience himself. So if you are in the area and need some advice on your existing plantation or are considering forestry as a new farm enterprise please feel free to call in to the office any Wednesday, by appointment or any day you see the green van outside. Please see our advert on this page for more information.
