Forestry Management

Our consultants understand the environmental and financial demands on farm and rural businesses. Increasingly woodlands form an integral part of many farm businesses.

Well designed woodlands offer amenity, shelter, shooting or income from timber production. Government policy supports woodland creation and management; grant aid from the Forestry Commission provides an opportunity for farm diversification.

Our Forestry consultants offer a range of specialist services, including:

  • Timber sales and felling permissions
  • Woodland creation and maintenance
  • Hedgerow planting and maintenance
  • Grant applications and administration including review inspections of old and problematic grant contracts
  • Forest planning and design
  • GIS mapping and survey work
  • Health and safety and environmental legislation compliance
  • Woodfuel advice
  • Sales of carbon credits
  • Day to day management and supervision of operations
  • Small scale civil engineering projects. Design and supervision of work
