We are able to select from our wide range of approved contractors the specialist skills needed to ensure your woodland receives a professional service which maximises value whilst at the same time taking account of all environmental sensitivities.

This gives us the flexibility to respond to the varying requirements of growers from harvesting woodlands on environmentally sensitive sites to small scale estate thinnings to large clear fells requiring fully mechanised harvesting techniques.

Our cable crane systems enable us to harvest timber out of inaccessible or environmentally sensitive sites and can operate up to 500 metres away from the unit.They have been used successfully for the removal of non-native species for peat bog restoration work as well as operating in sensitive water catchment areas where more conventional harvesting techniques would have resulted in unacceptable ground damage.

The experience found in our diverse range of contractors allows us to select the most appropriate and efficient techniques best suited to balance your requirements and at the same time to maximise returns, ensuing that you receive a one to one service and your woodlands continue to grow and improve.

Our commitment to the sustainable management of Britain’s forests has led us to achieving full FSC chain of custody accreditation which indicates that the timber has come from well managed forests which have been independently inspected and evaluated according to strict environmental, social and economic principles and criteria as agreed by the Forest Stewardship Council®. This enables Sheffield and Company to carry the FSC logo on timber produced from all FSC approved sources.

50 years of trading has helped Sheffield and Company develop strong relationships with markets all over the UK this gives us the expertise of being able to place your timber in the right market to maximise your returns and because we are totally independent we can guarantee the grower the full benefit of open market competition.

Our ability to respond to market demands is strengthened by our own in house timber wagons which gives the grower the assurance that their timber can supply spot markets with a minimum of delay, which helps to increase the value of your investment.
