Forest Management Plan Years 11-20
The purpose of the management plan is to provide information to the owner and the Forest Service, on the current status of plantation as well as setting out future proposed management operations. The data collected is of use for inventory, planning and budgetary purposes. A forester who is registered with this Department should prepare the management plan. The forester will carry out a field assessment to prepare the plan and should record and update all species, areas and plot boundaries on a certified species map. A once-off payment of 300 euro will be paid to forest-owners who have submitted a Management Plan, by way of contribution towards the associated costs. This will be included in the annual forestry premium payment.
Further information in regard to the above can be obtained by contacting the following persons @ Local Number 1890200223 or at the Forest Service, Department Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Johnstown Castle Estate, Co. Wexford.
Drawn up by forester-not sure how detailed it needs to be with respect to expected yields.
As an addendum , it would be interesting to see if the plantation signed-off on by the relevant forest inspector lived up to the expectations of the Inspector, and perhaps could be used as a yardstick by which to measure his/her competence.
