World Timbers Collection

This is one of the best collections of commercial world timbers in Europe. This collection of the timbers of the world was formed by Viscount Powerscourt K.P. over the three years 1930-1933.
The collection consists of over 870 samples of some of the world’s most commercial timbers – many of which are today commercially extinct from over-exploitation and illegal logging.

For the past 80 years the collection has resided at the Main Entrance of the Royal Dublin Society (RDS) at the Forestry Department of University College Dublin (UCD).


The exhibition will be on display in Killarney Outlet Centre
