Martin Fer­ris opens new Castleis­land of­fice of Veon forestry ad­vice ser­vices

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

MARTIN FER­RIS TD, Sinn Féin’s ju­nior spokesper­son on Agri­cul­ture and Fish­eries and mem­ber of the Oireach­tas Com­mit­tee on Agri­cul­ture, Food and the Ma­rine, of­fi­cially opened the Veon Forestry Man­age­ment Con­sul­tants new re­gional of­fice at the ad­vance fac­tory unit, The Crageens, Castleis­land Mart on Wed­nes­day morn­ing.

Deputy Fer­ris wel­comed the new of­fice as a vote of con­fi­dence in the com­mer­cial forestry sec­tor in Kerry and the in­creas­ingly im­por­tant role that forestry plays in pro­vid­ing in­come di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties for farm­ers, es­pe­cially in light of con­tin­u­ing un­cer­tainty over the ef­fects of Brexit on farm in­comes.

Veon has ex­panded over the past year to meet the pro­fes­sional forestry needs of farm­ers and for­est owner clients. With an ad­di­tional seven foresters in­clud­ing two ad­di­tional re­gional man­agers ap­pointed by Veon this year, it is now truly na­tion­wide with of­fices in Castleis­land Mart, En­nis­cor­thy, Drumshanbo, Athenry and Dublin.

“With Brexit loom­ing in the back­ground it makes more sense now than ever be­fore to pro­tect fu­ture in­come streams and take ad­van­tage of the grants and pre­mia pay­ments avail­able from the Forestry Ser­vice,” said Chris Byrne of Veon.

Both Chris and Daniel are based in the Castleis­land of­fice and wel­come farm­ers and landown­ers to drop in for a chat about the op­tions avail­able to them un­der the new forestry pro­gramme.

Veon has 25 years un­ri­valled har­vest­ing man­age­ment and is at the fore­front of de­liv­er­ing govern­ment tar­gets for the Ir­ish Forestry in­dus­try.
