Confor’s July 2016 e-News


At a special function in Dungarvan, MEP Sean Kelly launched website, a first for the Irish Forestry Industry in Ireland. This new website is a dedicated platform for investors to source existing forestry and land suitable for forestry for sale by auctioneers across the country.

A recent report by the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland found the average price per hectare for forestry land was €9,838 in 2015 and increase of 5% over 2014 prices.

The new website has been developed by Forestry Services Ltd (FSL) and will provide a unique platform for:

  • Auctioneers to advertise such assets
  • Investors to source such assets
  • Mailshots to all auctioneers & investors registered on the site of properties uploaded to the site
  • Updates on current forestry matters

FSL will manage the website and provide backup services to auctioneers registered to use the website. Such services can involve preparing land suitable for forestry & existing plantations for sale, advice on stamp duty calculations and CGT implications on sale of forests.

FSL are offering a special introductory proposal to Auctioneers which will consist of: Free initial registration for auctioneers. All registration by investors is free. All property listings free until 31st August 2016.
