Timber Harvesting

Timber harvesting is an essential silvicultural process for most forestry stands. Our professional foresters will guide you through the entire process.

Thinning and harvesting your plantation is a big decision. It is something that needs to be decided upon by a professional forester to ensure that the right decision is made at the right time. Managing your forest for the long term is our skill and we use that talent to provide you the best available advice in managing your valuable asset - your forest.

For example, if it is deemed too late and/ or dangerous to harvest, we look to other management techniques to ensure the desired results are achieved from your forestry portfolio.

Our team of professional foresters can expertly analyse your plantation and discuss the logistics of the harvesting operation.

A felling licence is required to facilitate harvesting and very often a forest road will be necessary to facilitate access. A felling licence is a complex submission, and with our in house ecology team, we will make this application process as smooth as possible. Once the licence has been issued, you benefit from the nationwide harvesting operations of Green Belt in improved timber pricing and performance.

Your local forester will work with you to deliver your forest thinned to a high standard with a view to maximising revenues from your forest.
