Following on from an initial consultation, we can suggest a site visit from one of our woodland advisors. A walk around the site allows a more in-depth understanding of the land and its potential which it isn't possible to achieve on a phone consultation. We will listen to your ideas and help demystify the process of woodland management and creation. During this time we can make suggestions and recommendations for your land and note any interesting features that are present.
The visit consists of half a day on-site followed by a report providing a brief summary of the site and outlining recommendations for management interventions and their priority in line with the goals of the landowner.
We can offer suggestions on:
- Suitable woodland grants
- Management objectives and suitability
- Ground conditions and suitability
- Disease management options
- Possibilities for your site
- Assessments and Licences that may be needed
- Further investigations that may be required
- Next Steps
- Further training for individuals
The advisory service offers support to woodlands of a cumulative area over a hectare, that currently has no formal management plan or is an Ancient Semi-Natural Woodland.
This work is supported by the Woodland Trust, the Forestry Commission and the Trees Call to Action Fund. The Trees Call to Action Fund fund was developed by Defra in partnership with the Forestry Commission and is being delivered by the Heritage Fund.
