The harvesting of timber and the enhancement of the location are our goals when working in amenity woodlands.
Taking any and all good wood that gets cut is healthy for the woodland environment.
Established woodlands don't need good cut material left on the ground. Leaf litter alone fertilises the soil.
Our relationship to woods and trees is truly ancient, and we are blessed to have evolved with such amazing companions. It is our special honour and duty to care for trees in their natural environment, to look after their habitat, and enjoy every aspect of working with them.
Trees are a truly renewable resource, and we must celebrate the bounty of wood, and see that every bit is used with gratitude and appreciation. Where possible, I like to extend the lifespan of wood after the tree has 'died', by anointing its many forms with natural nourishing oils
