Talking Timber

Talking Timber is a series of promotional and marketing events directed at private forest owners. They are undertaken by Teagasc (The Agriculture and Food Development Authority) and also involve the Forest Service and IFFPA (Irish Forestry and Forest Products' Association). They commenced in 2012 and number of forest owners attending them since the concept was introduced has increased to 500 annually; with a total of 2515 forest owners attending since the project's inception. In any one year a number of events are held in different venues throughout the country; each event is similar in format, with different speakers at each venue. There are three elements to each event, outdoor timber display on timber quality, a conference element and then a networking element, where forest owners can meet industry members on a one to one basis. Forest owners are invited to attend. Approximately 20 stands at each venue representing the local forest industry are present.
