Stunning views over the Kidland Complex in Northumberland. Restructuring well underway, showing diverse age classes and structure. Mature timber in centre of picture currently being felled and extracted by Skyline due to steep ground and sensitivities.

Tim Liddon, Tilhill’s Director of Forestry and a Director of the Conifer Breeding Co-Operative spent an informative day in Lockerbie last week with fellow Conifer Co-Op members.

The first part of the day was spent looking at James Jones & Sons Ltd. high output white wood mill. Discussions included the impact of wood density, juvenile core and knot size. The main weakness in our timber is probably knot diameter and branch angle. Just as well it is included as a selection trait in the Co-Op’s project for improved Sitka!

The group moved onto the Castle Milk Estate to look at an impressive very early improved Sitka stand and some trials the estate has set up with Douglas fir, Norway Spruce, Improved Sitka, Tamerack Larch and Cryptomeria japonica. An altogether thought provoking day.

Felled timber awaiting extraction before the stools regenerate at a woodland in Pembury, Kent, managed by our Southern England team.

The regrowth on the stools will likely be 2m high within the year.
