Woodland management plans

If you manage a forested/wooded area, or have a large amount of trees within your grounds, then it is important to know how to effectively and efficiently manage it. A woodland management plan with give you a minimum of 5 year goal to restore your woodland to its former glory. The plan will detail parameters such as tree species, height and condition as well as the work that is required and a time frame of when it should be completed by.

Forests/woodlands can be classed as a crop, and for a woodland to maintain its sustainability, a maintenance schedule should be implemented.

Be proactive not reactive

Proactive management of tree stock will enable you to achieve a long term goal, whether that's cultivation or opening up the space to the public, making sure you are on top of all the necessary work required is key. 

Trees are a valuable community asset, they help clean the air and can increase property values. Making sure that they are here for a long time is vital to ecology, not just for human benefits but for birds, mammals, rodents and reptiles.

 

With state of the art GPS and GIS data capture systems we can ensure accurate positioning of trees and evaluate the woodland to determine its condition, safety risk and its maintenance requirements.

We are committed to helping you, your woodland and the general community in achieving its management goals.
