The Native Woodland Scheme has been a wonderful addition to the planting program. It is now accounting for a significant percentage of the national planting numbers and has continued to highlight the great benefits forestry brings to Ireland in general and local communities in particular.
The Native Woodland Scheme is further encouraged with the support of the woodland environmental fund. This fund will add €1,000 per hectare to the land owner from a support company, interested in having an association with the benefits from the forest (but not owning the forest, trees or land).
