Management of Public Woodlands

Woodland Management

Glendale provides professional management services for areas of public woodland. Our experienced team can fulfil all woodland management needs including promoting commercial timber production and game as well as for purposes of conservation and recreation.

If you are responsible for publicly owned woodland, Glendale can assess and report on any required management as well as completing one-off jobs. Our experts can visit your woodland and detail the type of work required to ensure public safety, as well as advising on any potential grants and funding which may be available to support the project.

Our main priority when managing woodland is always to ensure public safety. However, through keeping wooded areas under control and in ecological balance, it is possible to gain other benefits. These might include financial gains through responsible timber or firewood production. Alternatively, woodland management can make green belts accessible to the public for recreation and exercise.

Glendale’s experts are experienced in devising and delivering in-depth woodland management at forested areas across the United Kingdom. If you require advice or a no-obligation on-site assessment, don’t hesitate to get in touch today.

Woodland offers a multitude of benefits and is also an essential habitat for British wildlife. Through careful and informed management, it is possible to keep wooded areas in improved health, safeguarding their existence for future generations. As well as environmental factors, healthy woodland can bring economic and social benefits to both rural and urban areas. The effective management of forested areas also mitigates the risk of accidents and injuries due to boughs falling from the canopy, or obstructions to thoroughfares.

Benefits of Managing Public Woodland

There are numerous potential environmental, financial, and social benefits to maintaining managed public woodland including parks, reserves, and similar locations. Glendale’s experienced team can help to keep your wooded areas in the best shape possible, utilising both proactive and reactive work to ensure public safety and gear the woodland towards its intended purpose.

Glendale has the expertise required to evaluate the woodland before advising on and, if required, completing any outstanding work. This includes specialist tree surgery and other work performed by our trained and qualified arborists.

Trees in public woodland provide value that is both aesthetic and practical. As well as giving members of the public a space for exercise and recreation, trees provide shelter, absorb dust, and noise, and remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Public woodland also performs an important service in boosting the well-being of visitors.

Is Management Necessary?

Although it is believed by many that woods will look after themselves, this is not always the case. In the UK, the delicate balance between woodland death and renewal has been out of sync for centuries.

Whereas natural phenomena like fires and lightning strikes might once have caused a break in the canopy and a chance for young saplings to germinate, in actuality this no longer occurs anywhere in Europe. Rather, it is necessary to actively manage woodland, encouraging and protecting new growth to ensure renewal continues to occur.

Glendale’s experts are ready to evaluate your publicly owned woodland areas before recommending and completing any work that is required. We can help to protect these natural habitats for both wildlife and members of the public to enjoy in safety.

Social Benefits

Our public woodland management services can keep trees and other flora healthy and strong, bringing a host of social benefits to the area.

Over the last few decades, there have been many scientific studies that found engagement with nature to be beneficial to mental health and well-being. Many legislative changes have been introduced to reflect this, and major tree plantation projects invariably include granting access to the British public.

We are experienced in managing different environments, ranging from public gardens to coniferous and deciduous forests. Glendale’s tree surgery and path maintenance services can help the public to gain the greatest possible benefit from forested areas throughout the year.

Environmental Benefits

Efficiently managed woodland, with trees of different species and ages, brings a multitude of environmental benefits to the area. With careful planning and work, Glendale can ensure the forest floor gains enough light to encourage growth and promote habitats for local wildlife. These steps are necessary to ensure different species can flourish successfully in woodland areas.

Public woods are an essential habitat for animals, insects, and plant life. From lowly shrubs to towering tree specimens, we have great respect for the natural world and gear everything we do towards protecting it for future generations.
