Forestry Horses

Screenshot from 2018-11-29 12-15-08.png

We are a small family business based on the eastern edge of Dartmoor, Devon. We firmly believe that horses have a role within modern forestry as we are able to work alongside conventional machinery to achieve satisfactory results for woodland owners/managers. Horses are capable of undertaking all timber extraction from first thinning up to final crop and can be particularly useful in certain  situations such as-

  •  steep, difficult, wet sites
  •  sites with poor infrastructure
  •  removal of windblown trees
  •  selective felling + extraction
  •  ecologically sensitive sites
  •  PAWS plantation on ancient woodland sites
  •  SSSI sites of special scientific interest
  • – SAMS scheduled ancient monument sites

We are able to offer experience days/training in our own woodland. Please contact us for details.
