6,000 New Jobs Could Be Created In Forestry Industry In Next Few Years
6 thousand new jobs could be created in the Forestry Industry in the next few years.
New figures show it’s currently in second place to dairy farming for generating potential income, but observers say it needs to double the number of Farm Forests across the country to maximise it’s potential.
