Public consultation open on Coillte’s strategic vision for future forest estate

Coillte has commenced public consultation on its strategic vision for its future forest estate

Coillte’s new and ambitious vision aims to sustainably balance and deliver the multiple benefits of Ireland’s state forests across four strategic objectives: climate, nature, wood and people.

A statement from Coillte reads: “Our ambitions are to create new forests and manage our existing forests to enhance their ability to capture carbon, provide more habitats to enhance biodiversity, supply sustainable Irish wood products to support the creation of new homes, and create more incredible recreational spaces for the enjoyment of society and tourists.”

Members of the public are invited to submit their views on Coillte’s strategic vision here;  Link to Public Consultation Survey

The consultation will remain open to the public until 5pm on July 5th 2022.
