Woodlands management

Bringing woodlands into productive management

Robert White, an owner of native hardwood
woodland in south Devon, needed to purchase equipment to bring his
woodlands into sustainable, productive management.

With a grant from RDPE, forestry specific
machinery was bought to aid felling and extraction of timber. A
firewood processor was purchased to make the timber into a saleable
product.

Mr White is now not only managing his own woodland but is able
to provide a service to neighbouring woodland owners who would
otherwise not have had their woodlands managed.
