The nation's forests are open, but please read our coronavirus guidance before you visit - read our guidance.

This area is closed to keep you safe!

To complete this work quickly we are bringing in a forest harvester. It is highly efficient and can process one tree within 90 seconds! However, it does need a 200 metre exclusion zone to keep everyone safe.

Photo shows a harvester amongst a forestry timber plot: an area which is full of evenly spaced straight pine trees, some with green lichen on. The harvester is a large piece of machinery which has an orange cab where the operator is sitting, atop two caterpillar treads to get through the brash. The arm of the harvester is out and the end is gripping a log which is has cut.
