Freya Forestry rejuvenates forested landscapes that hold special meaning for the woodland owner or local community. We follow heritage conservation standards and guidelines that ensure site integrity and aesthetic values are maintained. Special places, regardless of how small or seemingly insignificant, can become nodes of exceptional stewardship that invite us in and connect us to our woodland in profoundly personal ways.
Cultural and natural heritage features in forested settings include but are not limited to:
- historic walls and foundations
- geological anomalies
- unique habitat
Freya Forestry monitors forested properties for absentee land owners. We can be contracted by woodland owners requiring property status updates or institutions responsible for maintaining conservation easements.
