Stansted Forest is managed to provide a sustainable supply of timber and woodland products alongside landscape improvement, wildlife conservation and public access.
The Woods Department uses an American Timberking 2000 band-saw to produce a range of bespoke sawn timber prodcuts such as gate posts and beams up to 5.94m in length and 300mm square. This is produced from FSC certified oak, Douglas fir and larch grown on the estate.
The Woods Department also produces cleft and round chestnut products such as stakes, rails, pergola and rustic poles from its extensive areas of chestnut coppice. Chestnut is a naturally durable and versatile product which re-grows from the stump after felling thereby being a truly renewable crop. Areas are cut every year once they have reached approximately twenty years of age and the patchwork effect created by this across the coppice areas is not only an attractive, ever-changing landscape but very productive for wildlife.
