What We Do
We manage local West Sussex woodlands using contemporary systems where possible to increase the productive life span of the woodlands and their surroundings. We run a sizable cutting crew, thinning the vast areas of post 1987 ‘hurricane’ re-planted woodland. We also run numerous harvesters/forwarders allowing us to cut and sell more than 30,000 cubic metres of wood per year to various markets.
Aside from sustainable forestry & complete woodland management, we provide many local wood markets including quality chestnut fencing and of course various local firewood businesses (approx. 15,000 tonnes is sold to local firewood businesses per year). The aim for any forester is to grow bigger trees. All of the species are different and should be managed differently but they all need thinning at regular intervals to retain the increase in volume and to remove the suppressed, damaged and diseased trees.
