About Abbey Forestry

Abbey Forestry has evolved from a Partnership that was established in the 1950s and is now a limited liability partnership of University graduates and chartered foresters with many years experience in woodland management and contract work.
  • Centrally located, we are able to provide the highest standards of service to our clients throughout England and Wales, including Worcestershire, Shropshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Warwickshire, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire.

  • We work on a regional basis to maximise the benefits of using local, suitably trained and equipped contractors. The support of the Abbey Forestry team in every aspect of the business enables us to help you achieve your objectives.

  • Abbey Forestry offers all the expertise and resources you require from a single, dependable source. Whether you want to establish new woodlands or to manage existing ones for conservation, amenity, landscape, sporting or timber production, we would welcome the opportunity to visit you, free of charge, to discuss your requirements in detail.

  • For advice on the latest available grants, or to arrange a free site visit, contact us at our office where you will be put in touch with the relevant Partner who deals with your area.
Woodland Management
Our aim is to help you achieve your objectives from your woodlands. We will adapt our woodland management style and methods accordingly to suit your needs. We currently manage woodlands with a wide range of priorities, which include: Conservation, Wildlife, Landscape, Sporting, Amenity, Timber Production and traditional Woodland Management.

Our activities include:
  • Preparing and submitting applications for comprehensive grant schemes such as the Countryside Stewardship Grant in England and the Glastir Grant Scheme in Wales. We can help with felling licences where a quick and easy approach is required.
  • Completing woodland reports, management plans and work programmes as necessary.
  • Undertaking the valuation of woodlands and standing timber.
  • Completing the certification of woodlands where necessary.
  • Constructing access roads within a woodland which are essential to provide a greater window of opportunity for harvesting without damaging internal rides when the weather is less than perfect.
  • Carrying out Tree Safety Inspections
Harvesting & Marketing
We aim to ensure our clients obtain the best prices for timber by:
  • Marking, measuring and valuing timber for sale from thinnings or clear felling.
  • Compiling Sale details and maps for standing or felled timber, either for a direct sale, or an invitation to tender.
  • Preparing the site for inspection by potential buyers.
  • Providing and supervising certified harvesting contractors to fell and extract timber for sale at the roadside.
  • Drawing up Timber Sale Agreements with purchasers and supervising the harvesting operation to its completion.
Planting & Maintenance

  • We are able to design woodlands specifically to meet your objectives, whether they are timber production, sporting, conservation, amenity, or any other. Professional planning at this stage is essential to facilitate management now and in the future.
  • More recently Carbon sequestration and fuelwood are becoming popular reasons for planting trees.
  • We design and establish Arboreta with a variety of objectives, regularly undertaking the restoration and management of historic landscapes including avenues and parklands.
  • We select the best quality plants and materials from appropriate suppliers and insist on careful handling and planting by skilled contractors.
  • We plant anything from forest whips in restock sites and new plantings to semi-mature trees in landscape plantings, parklands and arboreta.
  • Protection of trees from rabbits, deer and livestock is essential. We can supply guards and shelters or erect all types of fencing and construct individual tree crates as necessary.
  • Control of competing vegetation is essential for plant survival and good growth rates in the first three to four years. Spraying and hand-weeding by skilled contractors will help keep the cost of establishment as low as possible in the long term.
  • Just before canopy closure or earlier if necessary is a good time to carry out a cleaning to release the crop trees from competing species such as birch, willow etc. As the canopy closes, the regrowth from the cut stumps should be suppressed.
  • Control of Grey Squirrels is vital in young plantations to prevent devastating damage to the trees. We supply hoppers and traps as necessary.
