Forest Management

At SAC Consulting we not only understand forestry and trees; we understand how they fit in to your agricultural business. Whether that be for diversification, income generation, shelter, succession planning, environmental benefits, development or realising the value of your forest.

We work with farmers and land managers to help them make the most of their land and their woods, whatever the size, negotiating the maze of grant schemes, regulations and guidelines on your behalf. Using up-to-date technology, including mobile digital mapping and data recording, and GIS, allows us to work quickly and efficiently.

We can work with you on a wide range of projects, from inception right through to managing the work on the ground. And because we’re consultants, we’re independent of any other interests, making sure you get the best deal.

Our team of professional forestry consultants work alongside SAC’s agricultural advisers right across Scotland, ensuring you get forestry and arboricultural solutions tailored to your business’s needs.
