Management of Private Woodlands

Carving out prosperous woodlands

The tax advantages and economic incentives that come with private woodland ownership make it a highly cost-effective gateway into land ownership. Our experts can give you all the assistance you need to make the leap into owning woodland without any hitches, or revitalise existing woodland you already own.

An active management plan is a must to get the most out of your woodland. Many of the practices adopted in caring for woodlands are steeped in tradition and demonstrate improvements in the wildlife value of woodlands as well as their capacity to produce timber. It’s also important to consider the whole-life span of your woodland and replenish younger stock in order to secure the next generation. Our experts will be with you every step of the way, from tree species selection, to planting, aftercare, harvesting and whole-life management.

For any advice and direction about the woodland legislation and grants available, or non-timber income opportunities, just speak to our woodland management experts. They’re completely in the know.

We say out with the new and in with the old – our vintage woodland management techniques mixed with the technology of the 21st century will revolutionise your woodland and keep it thriving.
