Woodland and Estate Management

The future of woodlands relies on effective management, just as a garden needs constant maintenance and care to thrive. Trees must be thinned to grow well and invasive species like bramble have to be managed so that they don’t dominate other plants.

Woodlands that have a reason to be managed, perhaps for timber, firewood, access or green woodworking, are more likely to receive love and attention long into the future, and indeed those woodlands that we have today have survived precisely because they have had an economic value to the local community- ‘the wood that pays is the wood that stays’

Taking the time to develop a management plan for a wood is a useful process to go through prior to managing a wood.  It gives you a chance to understand the wood and what your objectives are.  Having a management plan is also becoming more prominent in the requirements and recommendations of grant schemes and good practice standards

Wood, or timber is a sustainable resource.  Although not self sufficient in timber, the UK produces about 10 million tonnes of timber a year.  Woods and forests in the UK are managed on a sustainable basis and this level of production is expected to continue and in fact rise slightly over the coming decade.

There is a long history of timber production in the UK and much of our wildlife is adapted to the management systems such as clearfell and coppicing that are common.  Of course, leaving some woodland areas uncut and looking after veteran trees is very important to ensure a diverse range of habitats in our woodlands.

Sustainability within forestry and woodland management includes financial sustainability.  Making the most of opportunities to generate income from woodland management can help support work that doesn't generate an income.
