Forest & Woodland Consultancy

The design, creation, and management of forestry projects leverages multidisciplinary skills. These skills are employed to develop schemes that thoroughly consider soil, ecology, landscape, forestry, water, heritage, and other crucial aspects of woodland projects. The objective is to maximise the land’s potential in terms of monetary value, ecosystem services, and natural capital.

Our experience at Crestwood stems from designing woodland and forestry schemes, producing management plans and undertaking grant applications. This includes EIA screening and scoping submissions in England, Scotland and Wales. Expertise is also held in relation to compliance with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification criteria, for the UK and abroad.
