Native Woodland Scheme

Native Woodland Scheme

The Native Woodland Scheme is aimed at specifically promoting the proactive protection and expansion of Ireland’s native woodland resource.

These measure are:

  • Native Woodland Establishment (GPC 9 & GPC 10) which promotes the establishment of new native woodland on open greenfield sites: and
  • Native Woodland Conservation Scheme (NWS Conservation) which promotes the appropriate restoration of existing native woodland including the conversion of non-native forest to native woodland.

Call Axe Forestry for a free consultation, where a member of our experienced staff will survey your land and advise you on the best way forward. Forestry establishment is completely covered by a full state backed grant as Ireland, with one of the lowest percentages of forestry cover in Europe, needs to increase its coverage from its current 11% to 18%.
