  • Farm Forestry Plans to Plant Business at APF

    APF 2016 has announced that a record number of exhibitors have booked a presence at its prestigious show - and Farm Forestry is delighted to be part of the hype, launching the new Mega Mesh Treeguard Wrap, as well as exhibiting its unique, economical product portfolio.

    APF is the biannual event for the forestry, woodland, arboriculture, wood fuel and utility sectors in the UK and takes place on the 15th, 16th and 17th September at Ragley Estate, Alcester, Warwickshire. The UK market for equipment for both the forestry and arboriculture sectors is seen as very important and the APF exhibition is renowned to be the place where visitors come to buy new equipment.

    With its roots embedded in Shropshire, Farm Forestry is one of the country’s well established forestry supply companies, with over 30 years experience. The family business supplies an extensive collection of planting accessories and bioengineering products from tree shelters and guards, fencing, drainage head walls to ground protection and wire fencing. It also sells a diverse range of forestry amenity trees, conifers and hedging plants making it a ‘one stop shop’ for all forestry, specialist agricultural and commercial landscaping needs.

    Francis Plowden, commented: “We’re thoroughly looking forward to exhibiting at APF 2016 – the UK’s largest forestry, woodland and arboriculture exhibition. We will be launching a new product at the show, the  Mega Mesh Treeguard Wrap.  Aimed at the agro-forestry schemes, this product can be used where trees are planted in areas that sheep graze.  If supported with strong stakes, this product should prove very useful and provide economic tree protection for the earlier years when the tree bark is most tasty to sheep.

    “We will also be showcasing our  British Continental Fine Mesh Shelter which we have uniquely developed as an alternative to tube type guard, as well as other products which we have developed.  We’re a small family business with a passion for forestry; our extensive product portfolio of shelters and protectors aim to nurture the growth of a diverse range of forestry plants for commercial markets.”
