The Estate


More than one-quarter of the Englefield Estate is woodland. It not only shapes our landscape but also provides a sustainable source of home-grown timber, open space for informal access and habitat for important flora and fauna. As a result, we work hard to ensure that 3,500 acres of woodland in our care will thrive in the years ahead for the benefit of current and future generations.

With a production cycle of a century or more, all of our woodlands are managed under a long-term plan which ensures that a sustainable timber crop is harvested. We’re proud that all our woodland is Forest Stewardship Council® certified and evaluated according to the strict environmental, social and economic principles (Licence code FSC® C112410).

Our timber supplies a range of end users softwood thinnings used for fencing, chipboard and horse bedding to larger timber used for furniture making and quality oak flooring and timber framed construction.

You may even have seen some of our forestry products without even knowing about it – as we’re often asked to furnish film crews with trees and foliage for their blockbuster sets.

We welcome walkers in many of our woodlands on the Estate, a map of the publicly accessible areas around Mortimer and Mortimer West End can be found on the map here.

“Forestry Tractor and implements” grant:

In 2019 the Forestry department was awarded a  grant to invest in up to date, modern forestry equipment to improve the efficiency of forest operations across the Estate, bringing more sustainably managed timber to market. It is part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
