Successful woodland requires successful management.  Bringing woodland into management provides a range of benefits in relation to economic viability, environmental sustainability and improved social outcomes.

Managed woodland are also likely to be more resilient to increased threats  from tree pests and diseases and changing climate.

Producing a woodland management plan can provide a basis for demonstrating  sustainable management and supports implementation and monitoring.

Having a management plan in place is a pre-requisite to accessing grants under the current round of RDPE funding.

Northwoods can advice upon:

  • New planting
  • Access to added value markets for both timber and non-timber products
  • Production and supply of woodfuel
  • Grants and woodland management
  • Forest certification
  • Training opportunities.
