Silviculture is the practice of controlling the growth, composition, health and quality of your forest to meet diverse needs and value. Effective silviculture allows for more profitable harvesting which maximises your return.

Effective management of silviculture work is essential to ensure the health and growth of your forest. As well as thinning and pruning, silviculture includes weed and pest control.

This is where our experience counts. We have managed as many as 300 workers in our forests on a day to day basis. We have stringent quality control and safety procedures as well as a robust payment system based on the pruning or thinning prescription standard and the actual area completed.
