The woodlands on the Hampton Estate extend to 1170 acres (475 hectares) and comprise a mix of conifer plantations, broadleaf and mixed woodlands and chestnut and mixed coppice of varying ages. Timber production is situated mainly on light sandy soils which allows for easy extraction during most of the year.
We sell dry seasoned logs by the pickup load from our estate woodlands and these are available throughout the year. Our logs are air dried and split on site to a convenient size suitable for an open fire or wood burning stove. A typical load comprises approximately 350 logs (from silver birch, beech, oak, elm) and can be delivered within a few days of your order. Delivery is free within 10 miles of Seale and our current price is £130.00 per load (November 2019). We no longer deliver over 10 miles from the Estate.
Management Policy and Awards
The woodlands are managed within a twenty year Long Term Forest Plan agreed with the Forestry Commission which is a comprehensive document detailing all aspects of the forestry management.
In 2010 the estate won joint first prize in The Royal Forestry Society Excellence in Forestry Awards winning The Duke of Cornwall’s Award.
The judges commented “What made Hampton so special was the way dynamic and original plans fit together so neatly; the huge local population are central to the value added development of the estate’s quality brand”. The President of the Royal Forestry Society added “This competition allows us to tell the very good story of those who are involved in the wise management of woodlands and forestry”.
