ITGA Template Tree Sales Agreement
The ITGA Template Tree Sales Agreement for the sale of Standing Timber was part funded by Forest Service, Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) in 2014, to facilitate the sale of timber in thinnings and fellings from private forests in Ireland.
In 2017 the Forest Service commenced circulating this Template Tree Sales Agreement with felling licences in order to promote best practice amongst growers in harvesting and timber sales.
Furthermore, the Template Tree Sales Agreement meets with forest certification requirements and was adopted as one of the template documents for use in the 'Services to Develop a Group Certification Template for Private Forest Owners - A Pilot Project', which was completed in May 2018.
It was also adopted by DAFM as a mandatory topic to be included in the Forestry Knowledge Transfer Group (KTG) Programme.
Following Funding from DAFM under the Woodland Support Projects 2021/2022, a revision of the Template Tree Sales Agreement was undertaken. This Interim Draft Version 2.0 (July 2023) is now available for viewing.
