Forestry Harvesting and Forestry Thinning

To ensure that the final crop reaches its full potential, it is vital that the forest is thinned correctly during its lifetime. Giving space to the final crop trees allows them to increase in size, giving a high percentage of valuable saw log at felling stage.

Why The Forestry Company?

At The Forestry Company we understand that timber is a valuable commodity; through our long standing relationships with local sawmills we will ensure the best possible price for your wood.

We will manage all aspects of the harvesting process including securing the best prices from local sawmills for the sale of your timber.

We also arrange the construction of a forest road, if applicable, for the removal of the timber once it’s harvested.

As we are nationwide, we have local knowledge in all areas around the country and we are happy to meet you to discuss your needs.
