The Wood Register

The Wood Register is a free initiative set up by the Sussex & Surrey Coppice Group. It is designed to try & help land owner’s in the SE area find local woodsmen to cut & manage their woodland, whilst also helping local woodsmen find woodlands to manage.

 

It is the responsibility of the land owner & woodsmen to negotiate any terms, contracts or payment agreements. The Wood Register is simply a free facility for each party to locate & contact each other. The Sussex & Surrey Coppice Group will not be involved or responsible for any work undertaken, or for any of the terms that are agreed between the land owner & woodsmen.

 

If you would like your company or land to be included on the Wood Register, which will appear online, in the groups newsletter & in the free mobile apps, then please fill in the online form:

 

If you wish to remove or update your details then please contact us.
