Creating new woodland helps to develop new habitats for wildlife & benefits the wider environment. There are future recreation & health benefits realised from planting trees & potential financial returns through timber production or carbon capture schemes.
Stobart Forestry will assist in planning & planting your woodland based on your objectives, key environmental elements & tree species suitability for your land.
How we can help
- Discuss your objectives & reasons for creating new woodland – this could be environmental for biodiversity or financial for timber (eg. Short Rotation Forestry)
- Guide you through the grants & schemes available through public & private funding
- Survey your land to develop a plan for woodland creation
After the planning stages are completed Stobart Forestry will plant the trees & the development of new woodland will begin.
What happens after the trees are planted?
Once the trees are in the ground Stobart Forestry can provide maintenance services for the trees including spraying, competing vegetation clearance & tree replacement.
Stobart Forestry can continue to assess the new woodland site for woodland management & potential timber production.
The Benefits of Woodland Creation
Woodland creation can create new habitats to increase the biodiversity in the area. Developing trees will also assist in improving the air quality by capturing pollutants; in turn, helping to reduce Carbon in the atmosphere.
Recreation & Social
Trees can provide the opportunity to enjoy nature & relax in the unique setting that woodlands provide. Activities from running to game shooting benefit woodland owners & users, with the potential to provide a valuable learning resource to future generations.
Woodland activities can provide financial benefits to the owner. Further opportunities exist in timber production under good woodland management practices. The value of trees can also be realised in long-term income through Carbon Credit payments (Woodland Carbon Units).
