WOODLAND ADVICE MANAGEMENT
We manage a plethora of woodland and forest sites and the management of each of these is specifically tailored to the requirements of the client, whether that be purely for conservation, commercial, amenity, public access, landscape value or longevity or a combination of these. We develop a close relationship with our clients so that we can deliver the best outcomes for their own specific woodlands. This is illustrated in a range of management packages that we offer; some woodland owners prefer for us to take the management on as a whole and others like to be more actively involved with certain aspects of the woodland management, and for this, we tailor our management to suit their requirements.
The process of full woodland management is as follows:
- Site visits and mapping
- Application for a Woodland Management Plan Grant
- Development of a Woodland Management Plan (20 years, reviewed after 5)
- Identification of thinning / felling regimes
- Application for relevant Felling Licences
- Identification of other grant aid-able work within the woodland
- Application for the grants identified above
- Implementation of thinning / felling (risk assessments, planning, marketing of timber, harvesting operation supervision, overseeing of all timber income)
- Implementation and management of the work agreed through the grant applications.
- Providing budgets for both income and expenditure.
- Tree Safety Risk Assessment Inspections.
