Careful management allows us to nurture a sustainable mix of commercial and amenity woodlands throughout Rosebery Estates. From furniture-grade hardwoods to commercial softwood timber production and firewood, our timber production is wide ranging.
Meticulous, high pruning of select hardwood trees produces a straight, branch-free trunk and the highest quality timber for furniture making. Our foresters take pride in cultivating these trees from planting to harvesting.
Our commercial forestry produces 10,000 tonnes of softwood timber per annum. This is increasing steadily and expected to reach 24,000 tonnes per annum in 5-6 years’ time.
The entire holistic cycle of planting and harvesting sustainably is critical to our successful forestry operation. In recent years, significant areas of previously unforested land have been planted and extended. For example, over the Rosebery and Dalmeny Estates 26 ha (64 acres) have been added to native, broad-leaved woodlands in the past few years, helping meet government forestry targets. On Leithenwater Estate, some 60 000 trees are planted each year.
Ecology & landscape
When reforesting a harvested area, opportunities arise to restructure a woodland, increasing biodiversity and visual appeal. How the forest ages is carefully considered when selecting a mix of species. It is also important how the woodland will appear within its landscape and how it interacts with areas of open ground.
Further information about forestry on each of the estates can be found on the estate pages.
