Why is this website needed?
Small woodlands are difficult to manage because of their sensitivity to damage and the often higher unit costs of work. Most forest managers and contractors in Scotland are geared to work on large forests with large-scale equipment. However, there is a growing number of people capable of working on small woodlands, or on a small scale (and with minimal impact) on larger woodlands. But, being small businesses with no advertising budget, it’s not easy to find them. This website is a directory of these useful businesses. It is run entirely voluntarily.
