Ecological Woodland Management
Dronley Community Woodland

We manage Dronley Community Woodland according to the site conditions and the ecological processes by adapting low-impact woodland management operations. This kind of woodland management is called Continuous Cover Forestry. Our management approach protects the soil, forest microclimate, flora and fauna, and trees. Continuous Cover Forestry avoids clear-felling and regenerates woodlands by natural regeneration or under-planting.

We aim to develop a mixed and resilient woodland that can produce high-quality timber for the benefit of future generations whilst maintaining, enhancing and safeguarding a functioning woodland ecosystem. Protecting the soil is one of our woodland management priorities. We carry out woodland management operations by low-impact management by using soil-conserving methods for tree felling and extraction.
