About Treetop Forestry Ltd

In 1954, George Booth of Alford, Aberdeenshire, added forestry logging to his agricultural contracting business when he bought two Clydesdale horses to extract pole length timber to roadside.

Business expanded over the years and in 1982 the firm became a partnership of G.Booth & Sons.

Two years later our first custom built Scandinavian forwarder, the classic Brunnett 578 was purchased, to handle an increasing harvesting programme for Smiths Gore on Crown Estates at Tomintoul.

Following new investment and subsequent capacity in the pulp , panel board and sawmilling sectors in the 1990's, we continued to reinvest in our business to meet the increasing demand for professional high production timber harvesting.

Due to the scale of our operations we became a limited company in 2005. Treetop Forestry Ltd were duly formed. Our farming business remained trading under the G.Booth & Sons partnership.
