Forest track

Recommended Posts

As John say`s root protection zone. Its rather expensive by the time you fill them with stone but its rated for heavy plant and trucks. I will be in the office monday and see what it runs out at.

It coped with an 18t grab lorry the other day!

 

Have you any contacts for road planings Bob? Need done to surface a yard.

Al Tunnel grabs down at Backhurst have stock or give Bob at Waltet Materials a shout. Planings | Waltet RFSF Recycling

Expensive if they are off the stockpile but dirt cheap if they are planing roads locally, pays to keep in touch because they never know what jobs are on the go from one day to the next.

Looks good, but beware if you think you can just stick in a forest track, or repair an existing forest track. Building forest tracks can be a very involved process. A read of the Forestry Commission Operation Note 25 might be enlightening, not to mention essential, if you intend to build a forest track. I'd also advise checking with your local FC Woodland Officer before setting out and just doing it. There's also some good grants available from the FC, at least whilst we're still in the EU, that you may be able to take advantage of.

Back on track :)

 

The lads managed to get another kilometer of forest track done. Just the trackside left to refine, because the landowner likes to romp around on his tractor all the sides have to left mowable.
