Since its inception in 1982, Green Belt has established 400,000 acres of private forestry. This fragmented estate is bursting with potential (and wildlife). The benefits to the forest owner are quite obvious (Grants, premiums, timber value etc.) but the value to the wider community is often unrecognised. Forestry in Ireland employs more than 12,000 people, mainly in rural communities and delivers €2.3 billion to the Irish economy annually.
