'Let's Talk Forestry' YouTube Series

This DAFM funded project, 'Let's Talk Forestry' YouTube Series, undertaken by Linda Coghlan (Forester and narrator) and Ryan Conway (Film maker and editor) in association with ITGA, consists of a series of twelve monthly videos showcasing a forest owner's journey from the decision to plant through the various stages of establishing and managing a forest.  Each month, starting in January 2024,  a different forest owner is being interviewed and asked to share their thoughts about forestry. From the decision to plant in episode 1, right through to felling and timber uses in episode 12.
