COMMENTS: "With limited time and resources to spend on harvesting, we have found DWP to be an excellent one-stop shop for all our woodland activities.  By constantly dealing with timber purchasers, they are far more aware of markets than we could hope to be and have good relationships with contractors for which we also see the benefits."

COMMENTS: For me the most important element of DWP's service has been the fact that it has helped us maintain the discipline of a quality thinning regime as our woodlands have matured when otherwise, in my busy life, this might have been overlooked.  This should reflect on the outturn of our woodlands when we come to clear-felling them.”
