Woodland Management

Looking for Woodland Management in London?

What is Woodland Management?

Woodland management is in high demand because about 80% of UK lumber is imported. Many UK woodlands, especially those in private ownership, would benefit from management. 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.

If you’re responsible for woodland in need of management give us a call and we can discuss your needs. Otherwise you can learn more about the process from this link or via the FAQs below.

Woodland Management FAQs

Occasionally, due to an ever greater demand on the housing stock and an increasing need for cemeteries, we may need to fell sections of woodland. In such cases, we liaise very closely with the local authority, environmentalists and developers, conducting extensive assessments to ensure there is a minimum of disturbance to the local wildlife and the remaining tree stock.
Broadly speaking this task involves improving and maintaining biodiversity, conserving wildlife and ecosystems, increasing the yield of timber, and various other factors. Recreational considerations are increasingly relevant, too: ensuring that woodland is there for us and future generations to enjoy.
