About 80% of UK lumber is imported, and as a consequence there’s a push toward managing neglected woodlands often in private ownership. The idea is to activate management programs on them, mitigate against the increasing carbon footprint associated with importing wood, and to use UK wood instead, stimulating the domestic market.
Sustainable woodland management is a crucial part of land management, ensuring a balance between conservation, biodiversity, and recreational access. While it may seem counterproductive removing trees from established woodland, doing so can actually help the land to thrive, and this is the goal of our woodland management services.
The management of established areas of trees normally in close confinement within urban environments. The temptation is often to leave urban woodlands to overgrow but this leads to an unusable and problematic woodland.
Regular work to encourage a natural and sustainable woodland ecosystem involves techniques such as the selective thinning and felling of trees to allow more light to penetrate through the high canopy to encourage more woodland flora. Once thinned out, bulbs, small shrubs and grass can grow with minimal restrictions
