RDS Forest & Woodland Awards
Celebrating the best forests and foresters in Ireland, 'RDS Forest and Woodland Awards' are the only awards of their kind in Ireland. They recognise and reward farmers and woodland owners who are employing the principles of Climate-Smart Agriculture on their properties including: sound commercial management, environmental protection and encouragement of bio-diversity.
The twin goals of promoting the economic and environmental benefits of good forestry and farming is the underlying motivation behind these Awards. The goal of the RDS Agriculture and Rural Affairs programme is to promote best practice and efficiency in farming to ensure farm household profitability and sustainability in Ireland.
The RDS has been involved in forestry since the 1740s with many of Ireland’s oldest remaining forests originally planted on foot of RDS grants (or premiums as they were known). The Awards continue the RDS tradition of involvement in forestry by highlighting excellent Irish farmers and communicating what they are able to accomplish through the application of best practice and innovative management techniques.
