NEW WOODLAND PLANTING
We have, as a company been involved with many new planting schemes, but the most notable was the creation of a 100 ha new commercial forest at Roadford Lake for South West Lakes Trust in 2000. In order to achieve this, we secured grant funding through South West Forest and it was one of the largest planting schemes in the South West of England at that time. We are still heavily involved in the management of this forest today and at year 19, we are just about to commence our first commercial thinning operation which will result in extremely significant timber incomes for the owners. We are more than happy to invite prospective clients to come along to have a look at this operation.
Since then, grant availabilities have changed, however we pride ourselves on keeping up to date with the relevant planting schemes and associated grants to be able to facilitate this.
We can manage all aspects of new planting schemes which will include;
- Consultation on suitable new planting areas,
- Grant Applications,
- Environmental Impact Assessments
- Sourcing of suitable planting stock
- Planting operations
- Risk Assessments
- Managing contractors
- Maintenance operations
- On-going management
