Forestry Establishment / Afforestation

The Afforestation Scheme is administered by the Forest Service and offers grants for establishing and maintaining forest plantations. All landowners (farmers and non-farmers) are eligible to receive grant aid to plant new forestry on their lands.
The grant covers the costs of:
- Scrub clearance
- Site ground preparation (mounding, ripping)
- Fencing to exclude stock, rabbits or deer
- Tree purchase from nursery
Planting of trees.
The landowner receives an annual premium payment for a 15 year period. This premium ranges from €200 – €260 an acre depending on the species and forest type planted.
