The Irish Timber Growers Association have long taken a lead in highlighting innovative ways of providing woodland owners with alternative supplementing revenue streams from their woodlands through a wide range of activities.

Such activities have also been highlighted during past ITGA field days, including:

  • Woodland Bee Keeping
  • Inoculating Logs with edible Mushrooms
  • Introducing wild turkeys into woodlands
  • Introducing free range pigs into woodlands
  • Field Archery
  • Woodland Paintball ventures
  • Woodland (Music) Festivals
  • Wood Crafts, including Furniture making
  • Forest Foliage
  • Forest & Health
  • Woodland Preserves
  • Firewood
  • Recreation
  • Sourcing Spruce tips for the brewing of Spruce beer
  • Biomass Harvesting
  • Stump Grinding
  • Charcoal Making
  • Renewable Energy initiatives

See our past newsletter issues for detailed reports on ITGA field days.

ITGA also keeps members informed about innovation in forestry technology by reporting on national and international trade shows and forestry events.
Reports on new forestry technology are published in our newsletters and annual forestry yearbook.


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.
