The State should buy more land for forestry and rewilding, Tánaiste and Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin has said.

Responding to questions on Coillte’s decision to link up with an investment fund to purchase €200m worth of new and existing forestry land, he said his view was that subject to State aid rules, in terms of forestry, he would want the land to be in State ownership.
