Summer so far has been extremely dry as most residing in the UK will be well aware. Market demand is continuing to drive the business forward & is enabling many sites to be undertaken which would not previously have been possible. Such unusually dry weather, however, has its drawbacks. Some restock sites are suffering due to the drought & there is a significant fire risk. Here in the Scottish Borders, there have been some showers of late, but all moisture is quickly absorbed with little evidence left of any rain at all!
Agriforest has recently won several tenders for work which will see the harvesting crews flat out for the rest of the year. Also, two smaller sites consisting of 250t & 40t respectively, will be undertaken within the next few weeks by hand cutters, with timber being extracted via our forestry tractor & trailer.
