Carbon Code Woodland Awarded Gold Silviculture Award

Added by - PCS Host on 29 July 2016

We are proud to announce that the Zetland Estate Carbon Code Woodland has been awarded Gold in the Royal Forestry Society Silviculture Award.

The Royal Forestry Society Silviculture Award recognises and encourages exemplary best practice in silviculture in commercial woodlands where quality timber production is a primary aim.

The Carbon Code Woodland on the Estate is the result of Forest Manager, Shaun Purkiss’, hard work and dedication. Judges from the Royal Forestry Society noted the variety of species and their suitability as well as the significant improvement the woodland has made to the landscape when deciding to present this award.

We are truly delighted to have won this award but all credit must go to Forestry Manager Shaun Purkiss who not only imagined the planting that could be done, he also made it happen.
