The UK forestry industry organization suggests that tree planting in Northern Ireland must triple to reach official targets. The Confederation of Forest Industries (ConFor) has advised any future administration to make revising the forestry strategy a priority. Incentives and targets should be incorporated for growing wood output and supporting jobs, as well as reaching net-zero emissions. The Department of Agriculture stated that it was committed to increasing tree planting. As stated by Stuart Goodall, ConFor’s chief executive, planting healthy forests creates new jobs, and timber prices are rapidly growing due to the wood industry’s strength. Agriculture Minister Edwin Poots set a goal of planting 18 million trees by 2030 two years ago. Based on statistics, only 200 to 300 hectares are afforested each year. As per Brian Murphy, CEO of the timber company Balcas, they have a lot of unproductive property that may be used for forestry. Each hectare might absorb 12 to 20 tonnes of carbon over its lifetime, reducing a large amount of CO2 from the environment. He also mentioned that this will assist Northern Ireland in meeting some of its numerous climate goals.
