Committed to British forestry and sustainable woodland management

We acquired 304 hectares of commercially planted forest in Wales – boosting woodlands under the rural estates’ management by over 12% to about 2,800 hectares. 

The investment in Nant Yr Eira forest, in Powys, Wales, demonstrates our commitment to British forestry and supports our progressive and sustainable approach to woodland management. 

The woodland is within easy reach of the estate’s recently established commercial timber processing business – Grosvenor TimberWorks – which operates out of the state-of-the-art timber processing facility at Hatton Heath Mill. 

Sitka spruce from the woodlands will be used to manufacture sustainably sourced softwood products for use in construction and building developments. 

Nant Yr Eira forest was planted in the 1960s and received a silver medal at the 2015 Royal Forestry Society Excellence in Forestry Awards.
