Western Forestry Co-op were delighted the large attendance at the Forestry Information Evening in Kiltimagh last Wednesday.

It was great to see so many faces old and new, farmers and landowners considering forestry and existing forest owners interested in learning more about thinning and harvesting in their forest and how they go about it.

Of particular interest to many on the night were real examples of returns from 1st and 2nd thinning operations as well as clearfell and reforestation.

We also outlined case studies of full, part time and retired farmers on why they undertook forestry and how the income from forestry has complimented their existing farm enterprise.

Western Forestry Co-op looks after all aspects of forestry from considering your options to harvesting and replanting and everything in between. We will be holding 2 more Forestry information evening’s in Tubbercurry (Cawley’s Hotel) on Wed 1st February and Glenamaddy (Rafertys Oakland Hotel) on Wednesday 8th February.

We look forward to another great attendance and hope that local farmers, landowners and forest owners will be able to attend, for more information please call 071-9161458.
