Established in 2013 to provide tailored woodland management solutions to smaller landowners, Red Kite Rural Services have now grown and complete all manner of estate management operations. We still specialise in low impact woodland works ranging from hand cutting through to a small excavator based harvester. An excellent team of sub contractors assist us when necessary, bringing additional manpower and skills as required by each individual job.
After 10 years flying helicopters for the Military, a change was required to get back the real passion of working in the countryside. Having grown up on a farm getting dirty and climbing trees it was a natural progression to get back into the woods. Starting small we have grown but still maintain the ethos that if a job is worth doing, it is worth doing properly. Preferring ground work rather than the tree climbing we have recently expanded capabilites with the help of some grant funding we have added larger harvesting and extraction equipment to our fleet, this has allowed us to complete larger woodland works in a more timely manner and minmising cost to the woodland owner.
While we may focus on woodland and associated works, it is nice every now and again to have a change of scenery. With that in mind, current aviation competency’s are maintained as a freelance commercial helicopter pilot. This also has the added benefit of gaining a different viewpoint of potential worksites!
All this led to the establishment of Red Kite Rural Services, where we combine skill, passion and the personal touch to all the work we do, giving the best results for a sensible price.
We are based on the Cambridgeshire/Bedfordshire border but undertake projects across the country.
