Dartmoor Horse Loggers

Unnamed Road England PL20 6TT GB

We are based in South Devon on the edge of Dartmoor providing a low impact method of timber extraction and woodland management using horses. We cover all of South West England and South Wales. We have three horses, two Ardennes William and Polly and a Comtois Beano. 

Our services include:

  • extracting timber for first thinnings right up to end of life trees ready for milling
  • bracken control using a bracken basher with horses to crush the bracken
  • timber extraction on sensitive sites for wildlife or archaeology
  • extraction and sale of diseased trees
  • tree surgery
  • Purchase of standing timber

We have good contacts with sawmills and firewood merchant and woodland consultants. Our clients include the Woodland Trust, National Trust, RSPB, Welsh Fire Service and private woodland and estate owners.

We are always looking to purchase standing timber, we have good references behind us from previous contracts of standing timber purchases.
