Tilhill Forestry will be exhibiting once again at Cereals 2017 which is the arable industry’s leading technical event to raise awareness of the ways the company can help farmers make the most of their properties.
Around 25,000 farmers, agronomists and industry professionals are expected to attend Cereals 2017 on 14th and 15th June at Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire.
A team from Tilhill Forestry, including Senior Forest Manager Darryl Stubbs will be on the Tilhill Forestry stand (number 839) to talk to visitors about the potential income that might be currently hidden within woodlands on their farms through to the grants available to plant new woods and the benefits of managing woodland professionally.
Darryl explains: “We are delighted to be returning to this show and connecting with current and potential customers.
“We can advise on every aspect of woodland management including unlocking timber income, managing for sporting interests as well as encouraging wildlife. We offer a tailored package depending on the requirements of the client.
“We particularly want to raise awareness that owning trees, from one to a forest, brings responsibility. Landowners and managers have a duty of care to the public to safely maintain the trees on their land. Simply holding Public Liability Insurance is no longer sufficient and many insurers are now calling for tree surveys to be undertaken regularly and for any remedial action to be carried out promptly to minimise risk.”
Tilhill Forestry offers a comprehensive inspection service and we welcome the opportunity at the Show of explaining this service and our other activities to our visitors.
Other areas Tilhill Forestry can help with include:
- Planting new woodlands
- Applying for grants
- Restoring lowland Plantations on Ancient Woodland Sites (PAWS)
- Developing woodland for timber and wood fuel production.
- Environmental Impact Assessments and Ecological Impact Assessments
- The creation of wildflower meadows and marginal field planting.
- Habitat Restoration and Creation
