Bord na Mona leases to Coillte

BnM total landbank area is 80,000 Ha

4,000 Ha (5%) of total landbank is leased to Coillte

Afforestation was initially envisaged as the most favourable option for the after-use of postproduction
cutaway bogs. As early as 1955, experiments on the use of cutaway for forestry were carried out at Clonsast, Co. Kildare. These initial experiments yielded optimistic results and on foot of these results in the nineteen-eighties, Coillte leased approx 4000 hectares of cutaway for the growth of forestry.
