Horse Logging

Man and Horse have a long working history.  Horse logging is removing timber from a site without using mechanical equipment.  It is an environmentally friendly way to extract fallen and felled timber from woodland and supports natural regeneration.

  • There is minimal damage to flora and watercourses, no pollution and limited soil compaction.
  • Horses are excellent in sensitive areas, steep ground, around historical sites and among standing trees.
  • In areas of high public access, horses are excellent for public relations being silent ambassadors for good practice.

I am a member of British Horse Loggers and have been seen working on the St Ives Estate, Bingley;  Low Wood, Riddlesden;  Baildon Moor;  and Turley Holes above Hebden Bridge.
