We manage our woodlands sustainably and to improve the environment:


Trees and the soils they stand in are a valuable carbon store and remove atmospheric carbon as they grow. They also help reduce urban heat effects and mitigate river and surface water flooding.

All of our forestry is managed sustainably with more than 100,000 trees planted last year.

Across our three UK rural estates we manage a total of 2,476 hectares of woodland. This woodland represents the equivalent of 74,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and stores 1,220 tonnes of carbon each year.

Our foresters are responsible for the ongoing care and management of these woodlands and trees, as well as the production of high-quality timber, woodchip and firewood logs.
