Scotland - Tilhill Forestry builds up the team in Aberdeenshire
Tilhill Forestry is delighted to announce that Calum Murray has joined the North Highland Team in a move that sees him relocating from Tilhill’s West Highland District in order to expand Tilhill’s presence in Aberdeenshire.

Calum will be focusing on developing the forestry and harvesting business alongside District Manager Julian Hollingdale and harvesting colleagues.

Since joining Tilhill Forestry at the start of 2017 Calum has returned to the North East where he gained wide ranging experience working as a forester for the majority of a 21 year forestry career.

Calum Murray Tilhill's new Recruit
Calum’s new role will be to help farmers and land owners, who already own a woodland, in guiding them through the process to ensure they gain the best value from their asset. This could be by helping to realise the value of their timber through to seeing the opportunities available to utilise the woodland in order to gain amenity value.

Calum said: “Owners can have a lot of different reasons for owning a woodland. I really enjoy getting to know what their objectives are and helping owners get the best out of their woodland and I look forward to being able to guide woodland owners and potential owners in all aspects of managing their asset.

“I am particularly keen to hear from forest owners who have woodlands, probably planted in the late 1990s that are now ready for their first thinning at around 18 to 20 years old. Most woodlands in Aberdeenshire are suitable for thinning and this realises an early income from the crop, helps future valuable saw logs develop and maximises the overall return from each forest rotation.”

With timber prices potentially reaching a peak and demands strong for all products from logs through to biomass now is the best possible time to get these woodlands thinned. Calum is well placed to offer the best local advice on all aspects of achieving the best value from this operation.

There will be many in the north east who already know Calum from previous forestry roles and he is looking forward to working with them again as well as being able to get to know many new clients in his new role.
