Charcoal Burning

Some of the thinning of the hardwoods has been sub-contracted to Charles Stewart, who uses the timber to fuel his charcoal burners. This high-quality charcoal is sold to many outlets in the Lake District and surrounding areas. Ian Jack, who runs Lowther Forestry and also manages the Greystoke Estate woodlands, often uses Charles’ operation as an example of best practice in small-scale woodland management.
