Dendrophobia is the fear of trees - it's hard to imagine why you might be but everyone is different and isn't that what makes the world interesting?
At Green Belt we want to help you get over your fear - we'll introduce you to a tree, you can get to know it and soon, you might even embrace one - but we'll draw the line at tree hugger!
Once your fear is conquered, you might then realise that forestry is an incredible asset and one that offers strongs returns on investment, is a hedge versus inflation and is consistently less volatile than traditional equities. It also benefits greatly from favourable tax treatment.

Farming and Forestry go hand in hand. However, many peoples perception is that forestry is only destined for marginal or mountainous landwhich is not the whole truth.
In 1998, after 30 years of intensive dairy farming, John Kearney from Fermoy in Co.Cork, decided to downsize his farming practices.
Green Belt have been installing security cameras on our harvesting sites for some time now and have been impressed with the results.
This week we are celebrating national tree week. There are initiatives across Ireland and you are invited to create your own event and invite friends and neighbours to join you. Check out their website http://www.treecouncil.ie/initiatives/treeweek2014.html
Plant a tree this week. It's a lifetime of joy.
