Our professional and dedicated team will carry out all the necessary surveys of your property, produce detail designs and, with our skilled planters, will implement the new woodland creation to the highest standard and to meet your exact requirements.

There are many advantages to the planting of trees on less productive or unused land areas and farmers and landowners can now obtain a number of government grant and funding options to help with establishing new woodland areas. Woodland creation projects can be undertaken on suitable land from 3 hectares up larger areas of over 10 hectares and can provide substantial environmental and financial benefits.
Woodland Creation benefits include:
- Timber production
- Increasing land value
- Providing shelter for crops and livestock
- Providing new wildlife habitats
- Stabilising river banks
- Game cover
- Improving the amenity value
