Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Officials of my Department have carried out a thorough search using the details supplied and have not found a felling licence application for the person named. All felling licence applications are acknowledged on receipt and given a reference number. If the Deputy would like to provide that reference number, I would be happy to make further enquiries.

If it is the case that a felling licence has not yet been applied for, the landowner will find information on how to do so on the Department's website www.agriculture.gov.ie or may email felling.forestservice@agriculture.gov.ie for further information.
