Forest management is a long-term cycle of planting, thinning and felling trees that can rotate for decades, if not centuries. We balance this with a long-term plan that guides our decisions on timber harvesting, biodiversity and wildlife habitats.

Windsor Great Park is part of the operational Windsor Estate, which also includes commercial forests, golf courses, farms and the Ascot race course.
From William I’s hunting grounds to Queen Victoria’s royal picnics, the landscape has been improved, cherished and shared by a long line of monarchs.
Conservation & Stewardship
The Windsor Estate is home to a vast array of flora and fauna. The long-term stewardship of its habitats and wildlife – by The Crown Estate – has made the Estate an internationally recognised example of biodiversity, sustainability and conservation.
The Estate has been practicing sustainable land use for hundreds of years. As part of The Crown Estate, we recognise the climate emergency and are committed to becoming net zero by 2030.
