Woodlands of Ireland is an inclusive, membership organisation dedicated to native woodlands.


The primary objectives of Woodlands of Ireland are:

  • to generate awareness of native woodlands amongst policy makers and the general public
  • to develop projects and sustainable management strategies aimed at ensuring the future viability of native woodlands

Both objectives are often addressed together in a partnership format, especially through the implementation of flagship projects, training courses, technical publications, policy development and the provision of support at local level.
