We have a resident woods team of tremendous experience. Our head woodman, John Lanham, has been working in the woods dept. since 1976, and he is ably assisted by Nick Scaife and Rob Kennedy as well as various short-term contractors. John received his long-service award in 2011 at the Great Yorkshire show.
With about 700 acres of woodland to manage as well as taking on many other maintenance issues across the estate, the woods dept. is one of the most varied and hard-working on the estate.
Beams and planks
We have started processing our own timber and have cut a substantial amount of beams and are also kiln drying oak planks. These will be available for direct sale - please contact the estate office if interested.
Air dried hard wood logs are available for delivery in 900mm x 900mm dumpy bags @ £55/bag delivered FOC with the parishes of South Dalton, Holme-on-the-Wolds, Etton, Lockington, Scorborough and Beswick.
As part of the biomass scheme The Dalton Estate will have woodchip for sale, for local consumers able to be delivered in a 16 tonne load @ £100/tonne.
