Abstract

A pilot project to develop an Indicative Forest Strategy (IFS), using Co. Clare as the study area, is being undertaken by the Forestry Research Department of Teagasc. This project is being funded by the Backup Measures of the forestry grants as administered by the Forest Service. An IFS embodies the idea of putting the right trees in the right places. The aim of this IFS is to provide a scientific basis to assist future policy decisions about potential locations of forestry, considering such factors as tree productivity, environmental resources and socio-economics.
