EGGER Forest Management expertise has helped the client achieve their diverse objectives on a 2,300 hectare mixed estate with 535 hectares of native broadleaf, mixed policy and commercial conifer woodlands.

Issues:

  • Mature conifer stands require felling and restocking
  • Large areas of birch and oak woods degraded by herbivore browsing, lack structure and composition
  • Estate brand vital to uphold
  • Limited productivity from existing commercial conifers
  • Multiple-objectives across a range of interests including sporting, holiday lets and forestry.

Solutions:

  • Long-term forest plan approved in 2018. Phased restructuring in progress
  • Development and delivery of a deer management plan and use of targeted methods to encourage natural regeneration of native tree species
  • Forest certification to the UK Woodlands Assurance Standard
  • Planting of new 144 ha conifer woodland completed in early-2019. Further woodland creation under consideration
  • Forest manager works closely with the estate owner and other key stakeholders.
