Many woodland owners are not fully aware of the financial potential of their woodlands and how they can make the best return from them. For those inexperienced about forestry who would like to explore this as a potential income stream, ADAS offers a complete forestry and woodland management service.

The ADAS forestry and woodland management team includes both experienced forestry consultants and Chartered Foresters. We are able to advise on all aspects of woodland and forestry management from site selection and grant advice, through to woodland establishment and valuations. We are based all across the country.

We have extensive experience working with all types of landowner including large country estates, investment landowners, farmers, utility companies and Network Rail.

Woodland establishment

Site selection and design

Our services include everything from new woodland establishment through to arranging the felling and marketing of timber. We are able to advise on the design and planning for the creation of new woodlands, including site selection.

When it comes to funding, we can help with selecting and submitting woodland support and grant funding applications. Grant funding is available for producing woodland management plans, creating and establishing new woodland and helping to rehabilitate neglected woodlands.

We can also offer advice on natural regeneration for rewilding schemes.

Woodland management plans

To maximise the financial returns and to secure other benefits from woodlands, they need to be well managed. This would be ideally under an approved Forestry Commission woodland management plan.

We can fully tailor woodland management plans to your objectives and assist with achieving certification by accreditation bodies.

Timber marketing

Securing you the best prices

As independent advisers, we can offer impartial advice and an “open book” timber marketing service to secure the best prices. We offer forestry valuations and are well known to timber merchants for standing, roadside or delivered timber.
