Worcester WR6 5SG
The current woodland area managed for commercial timber production is approximately 350 acres. The woodlands are composed of: mature oak, other broadleaves, conifers, NS/OK mixtures.
The mature oak on the Estate is of high quality – two of the oak woodlands are registered seed stands. A prime aim of management has been to continue to grow quality oak. Early restocking with oak used NS as a nurse crop. More recently oak have been planted in blocks with other hardwoods and/or natural regeneration in between. Formative pruning of the oak is practised, and restocking is where possible from acorns/seedlings sourced on the Estate. Whitbourne Estate has won the RFS Excellence in Forestry Award 2013 for Silviculture after judges said they had never before seen oak of such first-class quality.
