Forestry & Woodland
Our professional managers offer a specialist individual service to woodland owners and new investors with a focus upon seeking opportunity and delivering performance.
Based in Carlisle, our dedicated forestry team supports clients across the Scottish Borders, north of England and beyond, providing a comprehensive management and consultancy service. Working closely with our other offices and departments, we provide integrated and highly professional advice whether involving small amenity woodlands or large commercial plantations.
Our services include:
All aspects of commercial forest and amenity woodland management including design, inventory, planning, timber sales and silvicultural practice.
New Woodland Creation
We provide a complete service to deliver all types of new woodland creation. This service includes carrying out pre-application site appraisals, environmental assessments, Forestry Commission grant applications, contract management, and ongoing woodland maintenance to ensure successful establishment.
We are committed to managing all woodlands to comply with the UK Woodland Assurance Scheme, consistent also with Industry best practice. There is also an Edwin Thompson group certification scheme to facilitate the management of commercial woodlands in compliance with the Forestry Stewardship Council® (FSC® C021703) guidelines enabling owners to take advantage of commercial benefits afforded by certification.
