Woodland ThinningWoodland Thinning.

In addition to harvesting mature woodlands, we offer thinning services for younger woodlands. Thinning is the removal of a percentage of the trees in order to provide growing space for the remaining ones. This results in bigger, more valuable trees at final harvest. Thinning usually begins when the trees are 10m – 12m tall, so trees planted in the early 1990’s are ready now.

Generally income from thinning is modest because the harvesting costs are high and the quality & quantity of timber is low. Nevertheless, it provides an income and will increase the value of the final crop.
