To grow, harvest and market the best possible product we rely on a dedicated team. This includes:
Our Operation Staff
Summit has a team of 10 staff managing and supervising our operations. However, we can’t do it alone. We also depend on a team of skilled contractors.
We have 1 large Silviculture crew (with 25 staff) contracted to grow the best trees we can.
To build the roads which access our wood, we need skill. This comes in the form of 5 roading contractors with a range of skillsets to match any terrain.
We have 11 highly trained harvesting crews (totalling 70 staff) helping us to harvest our estate in a manner which protects our people, environment and that realises the value of the resource.
In total we have 4 hauler and 7 ground based operations within our estate and managed forests.
To get the logs to market we rely on the logistics, trucks and drivers of 4 cartage contractors.
At present our annual production is 570,000 tonne. We arrive at this figure through a detailed process of forest measurement and modelling to ensure we harvest at a level which we can sustain for the long term.
All area harvested with our estate is replanted the following year to ensure the continuation of our resource.
