Welcome to the Irish Timber Growers Association

The Irish Timber Growers Association (ITGA) was formed in 1977 to support the development and expansion of private sector forestry in Ireland and to represent and inform woodland owners. It is now the recognised national representative body of private woodland owners in Ireland. The mandate of the Association is to promote forestry and sustainable forest management practices to ensure that private forest plantations achieve their maximum potential.

Forestry enhances the sustainability of the agriculture sector through its environmental and climate change mitigation and adaptation roles. Forests also positively contribute to our biodiversity, recreation, water protection and flood prevention, renewable energy, air filtration/pollution removal and consequently can play a significant role in climate change adaptation within the agricultural sector.
