Description

Talking Timber 2018 - where forest owners meet timber buyers

With timber prices generally high at the moment, now is a good time to focus in on your forest’s potential. Teagasc's Forestry Development Department will run this timber marketing day to give forest owners with timber to sell, the opportunity to meet with timber buyers, harvesting contractors and foresters.

Talking Timber events are organised by Teagasc with the co-operation of the Irish timber industry and the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.

This year’s focus

This year’s focus is on realising the potential from your forest. Topics covered will include;

  • being market-ready
  • current market conditions
  • case studies of private forest sales
  • latest research on thinning and harvesting
