Our mission is to establish and grow Irish native forestry. Ireland has the lowest forest cover of all European countries: approximately 11% compared to an European average of well over 30%.
Over the centuries, Ireland experienced a near-total destruction of its forests mainly because of human activity and a deterioration of the climate: from an initial forest cover of around 80% to less than 1%. Ireland is the only country in Europe where such complete forest destruction took place.
Our core objective is to establish new native woodland forests that are both commercially viable and sustainable.
