Buccleuch owns and manages over 12,000 hectares of woodland across Scotland – dealing with diverse management objectives from commercial harvesting and marketing to complex continuous cover forestry systems.
At Buccleuch Rural Solutions, we are fortunate to have our own professional Chartered Forester and can call upon the vast knowledge resource within the Buccleuch Woodlands team. The team can offer you a “one-stop shop” from forest planning, grant applications, thinning and felling operations, ground preparation and restocking. In addition, we have specialist knowledge in small scale harvesting, sawmilling, biomass energy systems, firewood and biomass fuel production.
The Scottish Government has set an ambitious target of 10,000ha of new planting per year to 2022 which is making the value of woodlands in the carbon market increasingly important. Our woodland specialists can offer advice on carbon offset forestry within a new woodland creation package using guaranteed native tree stock from our sister company, Alba Trees.
