English Woodlands Forestry is one of South East England’s longest-established and leading forestry consultants. We have a wide and prestigious range of clients from large mixed estates to small woodland owners and farmers.

Our small professional team offer our clients a quality and personal end-to-end service from woodland management plans and tree risk surveys through to arranging contractual work and timber harvesting/marketing. We also specialise in woodland creation projects including planning, planting, establishment and carbon sales.

We strive to keep the health, biodiversity and resilience of woodlands at the forefront of our activity and pride ourselves on exemplary health and safety records. See our website for more information about our team and work.
