Specialist Tree Health Surveys and New Woodland Creation.
Acres Wild Woodlands Ltd are experienced in all current Tree Health threats to UK Woodlands, having delivered survey work for the Forestry Commission on tree pests and diseases including Oak Processionary Moth (OPM), Ash Dieback (Chalara) and Sweet Chestnut Blight amongst many others.
Background to our work
We have 30 years experience in forestry and woodland management. We try to promote more sustainable woodland management practices and encourage new woodland expansion and we manage our own small woodlands. We are contractors for the Forestry Commission’s Tree Health Contract across many areas of England where we survey for a range of tree pests and diseases.
Respecting the Environment, and planting more trees!
We avoid pesticide use, employing practical and proven alternatives for successful tree establishment for example. We are committed to upholding the UK Woodland Assurance Standard, including our commitment to the protection and maintenance of the long term ecological integrity of all woodlands we manage or are involved with.
Our own woods in Scotland are to be restored from a former Sitka spruce clearfell site to a more robust native woodland mix using both planting of new trees and encouraging natural regeneration, and will including several new wildlife ponds.
