The Forest Service have issued weather warnings about the potential for forest fires this week due to a period of high pressure weather leading to a higher risk potential for forest fires. Please see the dowload issued by the forest service about this.
Take particular notice of the avice about fires and farming.
Please be aware that there are bogus schemes using Green Belt's name and names of our employees to promote a forestry program in Africa.

Dasos Capital in partnership with the EIB and ISIF are heading up a forestry fund in Ireland of €112 million
Green Belt, Ireland's largest private forestry group are proud to be the national manager for Dasos, with responsibility for assessment, acquisition and management of the relevant properties. Quality, species and access are important requirements when considering each purchase. Ideally, areas of Sitka Spruce no less than 40 acres are to be considered and a similar area for land purchases.
Green belt will assess the land and/ or forest and a realsitic market price can be negotiated. We would urge those considering selling land and/ or forestry to have title documents prepared or in the process of being prepared through their solicitors. This will significantly improve closing time.
We have seen many parties who planted in the last 15 - 20 years seek to sell their forestry having enjoyed the generous premium. Now many are looking to reinvest the monies from the sale of their forestry into either new plantations or other ventures.
If you would like a conversation about selling your land or your forestry, please call Maurice Ryan on 087 675 3097 or email
Drones are becoming more and more useful when it comes to analysing forestry and timber. The ability to access pre first thinned plantations is made much easier by being able to generate 'live' imagery and can direct you resources to the areas most in need of assessment.
Green Belt utilise drone along with many other technologies to determine the best plans and maximise the ultimate yield for forestry investment plantations. You can call us anytime to learn how this can help your portfolio.
Green Belt has been shortlisted for the Excellence in service provision award in the annual AgriBusiness Awards.
