Woodhall is a privately owned estate in Hertfordshire. The estate combines residential and commercial property portfolios, arable farming, forestry, public events and environmental projects.

Whilst retaining a unique heritage and rural charm, today the estate is run commercially and seeks to demonstrate cutting-edge integrated rural management. 

There are many opportunities to sample the delights that Woodhall has to offer, as a tenant of one of its many let residential or commercial properties, as a visitor to its many events, or as a walker enjoying stunning views from rights of way.

Forestry Update October 2018 - 18/10/2018
This season of forestry works in Bramfield Woods has now been completed.

The Pine and mixed coniferous logs have gone to a sawmill in Norwich to be made into fencing and building materials. The chipwood has been used as biomass fuel, which will supply Heathrow Airport and other woodchip boilers. The firewood will be processed by local merchants and some of the red oak will be used for hardwood sleepers.  

Woodhall Estate are grateful to local pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders for respecting our signage and temporary closures of permitted paths, ensuring that this operation takes place smoothly and safely.
The Estate plan to restock the small pockets of felled areas with native, more sustainable species of trees. These will grow from naturally regenerated tree stock and will be topped up by seeds such as acorns sourced from local trees on the Estate, including some of the magnificent veteran trees found in Woodhall Park.

There is an element of tree top and timber left in the felled areas, to ensure there is enough material on the ground to hide young seedlings and provide refuge for small mammals, insects and invertebrates. As this wood decays it will provide an environment for the fungi and mini-beasts to thrive.
