The Native woodland scheme is aimed at protecting and expanding Irelands native woodland resource and associated biodiversity.
Native woodlands are usually described as woodlands in which native tree, shrub, and herb species dominate. The scheme is divided into two elements
Conservation: Supports the protection and enhancement of existing native woodlands and where appropriate, the conversion of conifers forests to native woodlands. The scheme includes a conservation grant for all work carried out and also premiums for up to 7 years. Link to PDF
Establishment: which provides funding for the establishment of new native woodlands on open greenfield sites through planting or natural regeneration. This includes the establishment grant, which covers all costs associated with planting, and premiums for 15 years. Link to PDF
The Native Woodland Establishment Grant & Premium Categories (GPC's) 9 and 10 reflect the procedures and standards which applied under the former Native Woodland Establishment Scheme, centred on the use of the Native Woodland Establishment Framework to identify the most appropriate native woodland type or types to establish on the site.

As a dairy farmer, I had little interest in forestry until I purchased land with milk quota in the mid-1990s. Both the milk quota and the forestry have proven good investments. I engaged Forestry Services Ltd to secure the necessary felling licences
