Today, successful professional timber harvesting maximises financial returns while encompassing the full spectrum of effective forestry site management.
As the UK’s largest independent timber harvesting business, Euroforest has the knowledge, experience, technical expertise and high quality work force required to manage your harvest as efficiently and profitably as possible.
Euroforest takes an integrated approach to all the risks inherent in the harvesting process based on internationally accredited management systems. This enables forestry owners to comply with all current UK and EU legislative and environmental procedures, whilst also benefiting from the Company’s FSC® Chain of Custody certification which allows client’s own FSC® accreditation to be passed on through to the mill or processor.
The Company utilises its extensive specialist knowledge and experience to pre-agree all aspects of Site Planning, Risk Assessment and Timber Valuations, working in close conjunction with recognised experts, in specialist areas like Steep Ground Working, Environmentally Sensitive Areas, Agreed Haulage Routes and Low Ground Pressure Vehicles.
Close monitoring and regular site inspections ensure the smooth running of operations, with the aim of optimum product breakout and financial return, whilst minimising environmental impact.

THE HARVESTING SPECIALISTS
Euroforest takes special pride in offering a bespoke harvesting and marketing solution where we focus on the delivery of high quality service coupled with market leading financial returns to growers.
Successful timber harvesting depends on a broad spectrum of critical factors. For Euroforest the whole process pivots on offering the best possible quality of service to our clients. Wherever you have timber for sale, either in large or small volumes, we are happy to quote competitive prices to growers.
The harvesting process starts with a site visit from your local Euroforest Manager who will advise you on whether your woodland is ready for harvesting and discuss your options, such as preferred timescales and site constraints, as well as providing an expert overview of the timber market. The next step is the preparation of a reliable quotation giving details of how we plan to work the site, as well as timescales for the operation. If necessary Euroforest can obtain felling permission on your behalf then, following contract signature we will be ready to deliver the contract on behalf of the grower.
Once the job is up and running, your Euroforest Manager will visit the site regularly to check and record progress. It is our managers’ responsibility to maximise the value of your timber, whilst at the same time ensuring the Euroforest team adhere to our internationally recognised ISO Health & Safety and Environmental site management accreditations, and FSC® Chain of Custody Certification, as well as the various rigorous industry codes of practice that the Company follows. We can keep you informed of site progress with regular updates on harvesting and despatch, including area and volume harvested, as well as product breakout compared to the original budget.
Ultimately Euroforest aim to offer a complete, cost-effective, highly professional and trouble free harvesting service to you, leaving your site in a good condition ready for speedy preparation for re-planting of your next valuable commercial timber crop.
