The total forestry cover in Ireland is approximately 732,000 hectares. Presently 47% of this is held by the private sector. Since 1980 nearly 20,000 landowners have availed of supports to plant forestry. The average sized forest holding established since then is 12.7 hectares. The breakdown of private lands afforested between 1980 and 2012 indicates that 85% of the forest owners are classified as farmers, which equates to 82% of the area afforested in this time period.
