IRISH FORESTRY AND FOREST PRODUCTS ASSOCIATION
Its goal is to build relationships across the sector and to influence policy.
IFFPA chairperson, Daragh Little, claims that there were too many groups with vested interests that confused the public and hindered direction for the forestry sector.
IFFPA aims to draw the many businesses and groups in forestry to work together for the common good.
Mr Little adds that the strength of the IBEC organisation is key to helping this firm through its strong technical and secretarial support.
IFFPA produces the only annual report on the forestry industry, which it maintains is vital for the sector.
