Recent harvesting carried out on a clients clearfell, consisting of 2.5 hectares of Sitka Spruce at 29 years of age. Product assortments maximised at all times in order to achieve optimum return possible to the forest owner. A total of 750 tonnes of top quality timber was yielded from the clearfell following two previous thinnings carried out on this forest.
As a dairy farmer, I had little interest in forestry until I purchased land with milk quota in the mid-1990s. Both the milk quota and the forestry have proven good investments. I engaged Forestry Services Ltd to secure the necessary felling licences, construct forest roads and thin the plantations in 2008. The plantations have been second thinned and I am happy with the work that was done and the returns I received from the thinning. I am looking forward to the clearfell and my only regret is that I haven’t got more forestry
