The Changing Landscape
Big News! Tom Compton & Ian McNally of English Woodlands Forestry Ltd have joined forces with Neil Powell of Powell forestry Ltd to form Land & Forest Ltd…
As a company English Woodlands Forestry have had dealings with Powell Forestry for almost a generation. In that time Neil Powell and his father Alan Powell before him have been consistently providing us with access to the competitive timber market.
In turn we have been providing Powell Forestry with access to our professional forest management services and team.
We are happy to report that on 1st October 2019 the shareholders and directors of English Woodlands Forestry Ltd and Powell Forestry Ltd joined forces to form a new holding company – Land and Forest Ltd – to bring the ownership of both businesses together.
This forestry business merger will strengthen the service available to our customers, enable us to continue investing in equipment, rationalise and focus our health and safety operating procedures and provide career progression for our staff.
The Same But Different
Both English Woodlands Forestry Ltd and Powell Forestry Ltd will remain as trading companies in their own right. English Woodlands Forestry will continue to focus on providing a complete, professional woodland management service from preparation of management plans to all operational activities. As a leading independent Round Timber specialist Powell Forestry will continue to help owners achieve the best value for their timber through strong relationships with end users, cutters and hauliers.
As a client of English Woodlands Forestry your round timber will continue to be sold on an arms length basis to markets best suited to the quality of the logs. As an independent trader that seeks and achieves long term relationships with secure markets Powell Forestry will continue to gain consistently competitive prices for forest owners.
We look forward to a strengthened future for both companies and for our clients interests.
