Forestry & Woodland Creation & Management

With respect to preliminary site preparation and planting the following are some of the options available to landowners:

  • Herbicide spraying to remove all competing vegetation.
  • Supply of transplant or plug tree stock.
  • Machine/Mechanical planting.
  • Hand planting on more complicated ground.
  • Vegetation mulching and mowing


Following planting the new woodland needs to be maintained to ensure successful establishment.

  • Inspect the new woodland regulary for disease and pest damage.
  • Replace any significant losses to ensure an adequate stocking density.
  • Spray with herbicides if required.
