Woodland Management

We welcome the wonders of woodland work.
We’ll help sustain the diversity of your woodland and its inhabitants.

Helping your woodland thrive

Arborculture offers a full range of low impact and sustainable forestry works to care for your woodland to ensure it becomes productive and diverse. Wales is home to beautiful woodlands of all ages, conditions and sizes, all of which rely on effective management to be productive and thrive. We follow continuous cover forestry practices, so we don’t clear fell unless entire areas are diseased.

Do you have an area of scrub or field that could be woodland but needs work?

Do you want to sell the timber from unmanaged woodlands on your farm?

We can help.

Specialist advice & guidance

We specialise in hardwood stands of all shapes and sizes. Awkward access, steep ground and marsh land is no obstacle to our low impact equipment. Our Alpine tractor with driven forwarding trailer, forestry winch and our two tonne 360 excavator with timber grab can process and extract large amounts with very little ground impact. Often there is no need for expensive new roads as we can make use of legacy tracks. We can also deal with felling licence applications for you.

Encourage biodiversity

Woodlands must be thinned to encourage diversity, while certain species have to be managed to stop them dominating other plants and destroying the natural balance.

Once the woodlands are carefully thinned, the sunlight passes through the high canopy, encouraging diverse ground-cover and woodland flowers such as bluebells, celandines, and red campions to grow. This new growth attracts an array of pollinating insects and invertebrates, which in turn attract wonderful native birds, such as spotted fly catchers, long tailed tits, nuthatches, and willow warblers. Diversity is the key to productivity.

An effective scheme will turn unproductive land into diverse, productive woodland which brings positive benefits to the wider environment.
