Felling and Extraction
We provide a bespoke and personal service, providing felling, extraction and all associated woodland management services. Our jobs have ranged in size from a single tree right up to full woodland managment and planting through to clear felling. We can also sell the felled timber for clients too, providing a full service from without having to use multiple contractors.
For low impact work on small or sensitive sites we use a dedicated mini forwarder for extraction. This allows for greater efficiency by removing larger timber lengths with low ground impact. More often we use our tractor and forwarding trailer behind our excavator harvester. Forwarding is done when ground conditions are suitable - thereby minimising the requirement for reinstatement and reducing and potential damage to soil structure.
For particularly small or sensitive sites we either use an alpine tractor and forwarding trailer or a mini forwarder for extraction. This gives greater efficiency by removing larger timber than can be man handled whilst maintaining a light footprint.
Having received a LEADER grant in 2018 we have upgraded our equipment. The mainstays of our fleet are a low impact harvester and tractor based forwarder, allowing larger extraction for greater efficiencies. This allows us to harvest larger plots quicker than before whilst still maintaining the high standards and low impact philosophy we started with.
We are fully qualified to undertake all operations, along with full public liability insurance to ensure peace of mind.
