Does your forest need a management plan?
A management plan is necessary for larger forests (greater than 10ha for conifers and 5ha for broadleaves) and outlines a 10 year forest plan.
Have you inspection paths?
Inspection paths will be needed to show potential buyers your thinnings.
Do you have access or is a road required?
Prior to thinning your forest a roading grant should be applied for. By building a road you are increasing the value of your crop bu facilitating access.
Does your forest need thinning?
This depends on the species, height, productivity, susceptibility to windthrow.
