Nicholsons Lockhart Garratt provide a full planting and maintenance service with trained and highly experienced forestry teams, equally capable in handling mature as well as small bare-rooted planting stock.

New Woodland Design & Creation

For many years our core business has been our forestry services including planting, establishment and aftercare of new woodlands. From initial site checks and planning through to design, planting and aftercare, this is a principal area of our expertise.

New woodland creation needs to be given careful consideration as you only have one opportunity to get it right. We have designed and helped create many hectares of new woodland in recent years, from shelter belts and small woodland extensions to large woodland creation schemes.

By combining the experience and expertise of both Nicholsons and Lockhart Garratt we can provide a full end-to-end service from the planning, budgeting and planting of new woodland right through to the maintenance and aftercare, ensuring success for your Woodland Creation Scheme.
