Training and Tree Felling (and Donation to National Trust)



When selecting woods for training people to fell trees we partner up with local landowners who have areas of woodland that have often been neglected and may not be commercially viable for big contracts and machines.

Tree are marked up to take out the weakest or worst formed trees thus enhancing the chances of the remaining trees.

The brash is normally left in the wood as habitat piles.  Often small glades are created giving further opportunity for diversity with woodland species like foxglove, bluebells and wild garlic.

The timber is then extracted either for logs or biomass.  Occasionally some will be left in the wood as habitat.

Because all of our felling is done by hand rather than machine the impact on the wood is minimal and always leaves the woodland in a better condition than before.

We have also donated to National Trust to plant 500 Square Metres of Woodland on our behalf.  If you wish to donate, please click here to access the National Trust site.
