Abstract

The following paper describes briefly the existing stock of broadleaf forest in the Republic of Ireland, with particular emphasis on the area owned by the state, for which detailed information exists. It is shown that the nature of the broadleaf estate indicates that financial considerations were not paramount in the decision to plant broadleaves. The question of whether or not broadleaves can be grown at a profit is examined.
