Timber Supply & Demand

The most recent COFORD timber forecast for the Island of Ireland produced the following conclusions:

  • All Ireland supply of timber is forecast to increase from 3.8 million M3 at present to 4.7 million M3 by 2020 and 6.5 million M3 by 2028. This increase in supply will come from the private sector.
  • Demand by 2020 is forecast at 6.3 million M3 made up of conventional demand of 3.6 million M3 and 2.7 million M3 for biomass.
  • Therefore the roundwood supply demand deficit by 2020 is forecasted at almost 2 million M3 with demand far outstripping supply.

I planted almost 100 acres in 2000 with Forestry Services Ltd. The plantation is growing very well. A forest road will be constructed in 2015 with thinning scheduled for 2016. Simply, Paddy & the rest of the lads at Forestry Services do what they say
