Forest fencing and deer fencing is costly and difficult to replace
- often remote locations make repair and renewal very difficult
- the same remoteness makes maintenance very costly
- forest fence and deer fence products doesn’t seem to last as long as they used to
- typically, deer fencing and tree protection fencing costs twice as much to replace than conventional stock fencing
- Does saving £1000 a year per 1000metres of fence sound attractive?
Fencing off forests is essential to control the impact of wildlife and livestock on trees and woodland. Forest fencing and woodland fencing is often expensive to install initially due to restricted or difficult access and remote locations. They are however a crucial form of forest protection.
The same remote location and difficult access means that replacement of and repairs to forestry fencing and deer fencing is also hard work. Invariably greater maintenance costs are encountered than those associated with more traditional and easier to access stock fencing.
