As one site finishes, another starts....

What has been an extremely busy winter now looks to continue into the spring with the commencement of another site south of Edinburgh. This site is a combination of Sitka Spruce shelter belts, all of which have an element of wind blow within. The shelter belts have been valuable to the farm for many years, but are now overdue for felling. The combined tonnage will be in the region of 5,000 tonnes of marketable timber, which will be a variety of saw logs, pallet wood, and biomass.

With a very buoyant market at present, roadside stock is kept to a minimum with timber leaving site as fast as it is being cut across all Agriforest sites.
