Forest Management

Successful forest investment is based on the initial key components of forest establishment with consideration given to economic, social and environmental benefits.  These include:

  • land acquisition
  • proximity to log markets & labour resource
  • topography/terrain
  • species choice
  • silviculture regime
  • risk management

Ongoing Forest Management is largely about protecting your investment and minimising your risk.

Over the period 2010 to 2013 Craigmore Forestry Ltd established over 7,000 hectares of forest plantations.
The team from Logic Forest Solutions Ltd played a pivotal role in the operational planning and execution of this establishment programme across a range of commercial and carbon forests.
The majority of the programme involved radiata pine along with an area of alternative species in excess of 900 ha’s. The alternative species included Eucalyptus species, cypress and redwood.
The focus and attention to detail from Logic was superb and these forests were established to an excellent standard. I would strongly recommend the team from Logic Forests for forest establishment operations.
