Thread: Forestry Commision Leases

  1. #1

    Forestry Commision Leases

    Who on this site went for a commision lease?
    The leases that were available were available to everyone, who apllied for a lease package and who got an interview?

    I am curious as there are over 1000 members on this site how many thought that they were able to apply for not only an FC lease but leases from the other Forestry Companies.

    How many that stalk are in a syndicate of some description

    I have some stalking via Tillhill.
    Tried the F.C. several times but always had the feeling that for them it was a paper exercise and what they were offering was already designated to others.

    I never applied for a FC lease, I only have L1 but registered for L2. I'm not sure if I would go for FC as there seems to be 90% bad press about them. I did email/phone all the Woodland Management companies that I could find on the internet for available leases. NOTHING!!

    I have had a few leases from the forestry commission and they ran like clock work . But the lads on here who say it is who you know are correct. My feeling is that should you hold a lease and want to change then you must give your first lease up .One piece of ground per person to run is the way forward .That would certainly make sure that this was still kept as a special sport for those involved and would put a stop to the chaps who are only in it for money and power. But the only people that you can blame for this situation are the ones who make the rules and they are public servants and can be held responsible for there actions.

    Have previously been involved in applying for a couple leases knowing that someone else was already earmarked for it. When that happens I just try and get pally with the other party and offer a helping hand with extraction etc. Many FC leases can be a right pain in the arse with difficult terrain and a quiet offer of assistance now and again to the party taking the lease sometimes comes off. It's all politics and money isn't it?
