Timber production is an ongoing activity, with all Estate woodland managed, in-house and on a commercial yet sustainable basis. The woodland is an integral part of the Estate and is a mix of hardwood and softwood plantations of various ages, knitted into the River Wear valley creating a diverse habitat and species rich environment for the abundant different wildlife to be found on the Estate.
Occasionally areas are thinned or felled, with timber being utilised through the Lambton Logs enterprise or sold on the open market.
Lambton Logs – are cut from timber taken only from Estate woodland. All logs are naturally air dried and are sold by the trailer load and can be delivered within a 15 mile radius of DH3 4PQ.
Prices start at:
– £50 for a half load
– £100 for a full load
– £90 for a full load to an Estate tenant, within Lambton Park
