Forestry Acquisition Consolidation & Timber (FACT)

Green Belt’s FACT 2 follows the success of last years investment. This initiative creates clusters of semi-mature forestry in nationally strategic locations to service end markets including sawmills and biomass facilities. FACT will enhance the value of smaller forestry plantations delivering tax free returns to investors (T's & C's). This short video explains the concept more clearly.

As demand for timber increases globally, mobilising and valorising timber from Ireland's private estate becomes more and more important.

Green Belt has identified the need to consolidate small, strategically located parcels of private forestry into larger, commercially viable clusters.

Green Belt’s FACT initiative was created for the specific purpose of improving the volume, scale, market power and commercial returns for all timber products harvested within these clusters.

Investment Amount: €20,000

Time Scale: 10 Years

Purpose: Funds are used to consolidate fragmented forestry under private management in Ireland, delivering timber to meet growing demand.
