Woodland contractor wins grant from Objective One

East Cornwall Forestry, a Launceston-based woodland contracting business, has been awarded an Objective One grant by Working Woodlands to help with its need to invest in new equipment.

Run by Roger Bloye, the business provides services that include timber harvesting, tree surgery and estate maintenance. This work is seasonal with most of the work undertaken in woodland done during autumn and winter. Spring and summer are taken up with pesticide spraying and estate maintenance.

Roger now plans to expand his operation to include the care of young woodland plantations. The Working Woodlands grant has been used to help with the purchase of new tools and a tractor-mounted winch.

East Cornwall Forestry fills a valuable role in providing woodland management services for woodlands that are currently unmanaged. Once managed properly these woodlands can make a long-term contribution to Cornwall's rural economy.

This enterprise is one of the first to be awarded a grant from Working Woodlands. This European and UK government-funded Project is offering grants and support to businesses that grow wood, work with wood or sell wood or wood products in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Contact Working Woodlands on 01803 867891 for further information.
