Pryor & Rickett Silviculture is dedicated to working closely with clients and their teams in the management of woodlands of all sizes and forest types.
We manage around 50,000 acres of woodland covering Buckinghamshire to Cornwall, and Wales and the Marches. The properties managed are remarkably diverse, ranging from tiny Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) to extensive plantations, and from small farm woodlands to whole estates.
- The practice of controlling the establishment, growth, composition, health, and quality of forests to meet diverse needs and values
- The art and science of growing trees in forests
Our clients are equally diverse: farmers, estate owners and investment trusts, both private individuals and institutions, including conservation trusts, local authorities and statutory agencies.
We offer a range of management services to suit individual owners’ needs. Our full woodland management service takes care of all aspects from the sowing of acorns to the final felling of mature trees – and looking after everything from bluebells to forest roads along the way. Where owners require only specific or occasional professional forestry advice, we can act in a consultancy capacity or, if a regular ‘hand on the tiller’ is required, we can provide this as a retained woodland consultant.
