Forestry is a diverse and complex discipline. And we love it.
If you’re a land-owner, you want peace of mind that your land is being taken care of. We are heavily invested in our work at Black Dog Forestry and pride ourselves on getting under the skin of the land in order to truly understand it and the scope of work that is necessary.
To this end, we firstly look to understand the objectives of the land-owner to then plan an effective route to the desired outcome for their estate. Each project is different but in our experience the principal aims come down to two elements: sustainable management and commercial viability of the land’s produce.
Our Forestry Process
We meet to discuss your land. This is best achieved through a site visit so you can show us the property and discuss your needs.
We put together a bespoke plan for you.
Once you approve that plan, we will take care of the work with regular check-ins and reports.
Woodland Management & Planning
At our heart, Black Dog Forestry looks to help grow and maintain the core of our clients’ business. In doing so we contribute to the larger environmental picture - keeping what we love, thriving - and the benefits feed directly back to the landowner. Initially, we provide fundamental services to ensure the estate reaches a healthy, manageable and sustainable level with a view to begin deeper, more intensive management work.
For estates already at an advanced level of administration, we work with landowners to progress the business depending upon their objectives.
We enjoy getting our hands dirty!
Perhaps you don’t need comprehensive forestry management but have some services you’d like to outsource?
We’d be delighted to help. We cover all core woodland service to suit your goals.
Get in touch with us for an initial discussion about what you’re looking for, and we can put together a proposal for you.
Timber Purchasing & Sales
If you’re looking at buying or selling timber, we’d love to help. Trees and the resultant timber are vital to the U.K. economy and we ensure the landowner benefits from this demand.
We can take care of the buying and selling of all standing timber as part of our service, as well as the sale of derivative products such as cordwood and tree butts.
As with all we do, we keep landscape regeneration front of mind to ensure continued, sustainable administration of the land.
