Forestry Harvesting

As young trees grow, they begin to compete with each other for soil nutrients, light and moisture.

The future management of the crop is critical to ensure the site reaches its full potential and provides the maximum reward for the owner.

Not all sites are suitable for thinning as some wetter and exposed sites run the risk of damage from windblow as a result of opening up the crop.

It is advisable for a landowner to get sound professional advice before any thinning operation, 'measure twice and cut once'.
