ITGA

The Irish Timber Growers Association (ITGA) was formed in 1977 to support the development and expansion of private sector forestry in Ireland and to represent and inform woodland owners.
It is now the recognised national representative body of private woodland owners in Ireland.
The mandate of the Association is to promote forestry and sustainable forest management practices to ensure that private forest plantations achieve their maximum potential.
To ensure good returns from forestry, plantations must be well established and actively managed throughout their life. This is where ITGA provides valuable information and representation support services to its members.

ITGA celebrated ‘40 Years A-Growing’ at TIMBER 2017 in Stradbally, Co. Laois. Minister of State for Forestry, Andrew Doyle, TD was presented with a Bunbury Board to mark this occasion.
