Our work

Downs copse woods at Greenway, Devon

Felling at Longwood Noss plantation 

Longwood woodland near Greenway is an ancient oak woodland with an industrial past and commercial plantation from the 1940's. Over the last 70 odd years this plantation has been managed for its timber and has now reached an age where it should be harvested. The National Trust will be taking on this work during the Autumn of 2019 so why not find out a bit more?
