The above prices are intended for general guidance purposes only. These prices are averages derived from data received from a range of growers and potentially include all conifer species and harvest types. The averages marked * relate to average prices derived from a small number of sales data. It should be noted that roundwood prices will fluctuate over time and from location to location and no liability will be accepted by the Irish Timber Growers Association or UCD Forestry Section for the supply of the price data. All growers are advised to get independent advice in relation to roundwood sales. The Irish Timber Growers Association would like to thank Dr Aine Ni Dhubhain of UCD Forestry Section for her role in compiling these prices.

Contributors are invited to provide private roundwood sales price information for the current quarter. UCD Forestry Section would be grateful to receive private roundwood sales data for compiling. All information will be treated as strictly confidential and will be retained within UCD Forestry Section and only compiled average prices will be released. Standard Timber Sales Data Forms for returning private roundwood sales data can be obtained from UCD. Please email roundwooddatabase@ucd.ie.
