When the oak is felled the whole forest echoes with its fall, but a hundred acorns are sown in silence by an unnoticed breeze.

Native Woodland...

Woodland composed wholly and mainly of species that colonised after the last Ice Age and before human influence on natural processes became significant.

Previous projects

Tree Planting

This project involved restoring a ex gravel pit into a conservation site. we planted 8000 trees and shrubs in 0.6m tubes with stakes and 1200m of native hedging with canes and spirals. We then undertook spot and band spraying to all the new plantings, and used our ATV sprayer to apply a selective herbicide to control the noxious weeds.

Reptile Fencing

In this project we were contracted to erect 4000m of semi permanent reptile fencing to protect a colony of sand lizards in a ex forestry commission woodland that was due to have sand and gravel extracted then restored back to woodland. Four years on and the reptile fence is still in good order.

Tree Surgery

This particular project involved taking down a large beech tree within a densely populated area amongst building and next to a busy road, temporary traffic lights were used to control the traffic.
