Woodland Management

We offer a full woodland maintenance and management service for smaller areas either on an individual job basis or through ongoing contract.

Using a variety of equipment and techniques we can carry out the whole range of woodland management tasks from planting and first thinning through to clear fell and extraction.

We specialise in the maintenance of hardwood stands such as estate and amenity woodland areas where our low impact methodology reduces visual impact and ground damage.

There is an on-site milling facility for in-situ conversion of valuable, hard to extract timber.

We can carry out professional tree surveys and produce a management plan for you.

We are also able to work on SSSI areas and other fragile habitats using our horses and Scandinavian logging equipment to minimise impact.

Recent works have included a major urban woodland contract in Aberdeenshire - accomplished on time and within budget using horses and long-line winches to support our skilled chainsaw team.  We also carry out frequent woodland management works for councils and estate owners in the South West of Scotland - much of which is ongoing and repeat business.

Our woodland management team is prepared to travel throughout the UK as required.

All our operators are highly trained and skilled and their NPTC and LANTRA certification is always available for inspection on site.  All our work is fully risk assessed by our lead safety planner who holds a NEBOSH General Certificate in Health and Safety and has considerable experience in this line of work.  All our personnel are first-aid trained and all works are led and supervised by an experienced and highly competent crew chief.

Employ us and you are employing professional woodcutters - you will soon see the difference.
