Woodland Management

Woodlands often have a rich soundscape of bird song, bat calls and other vocalisations. Bioacoustic monitoring can be used effectively in woodland environments, as well as new-growth forests, helping you track the progress of new woodland creation projects and ongoing woodland management programmes.

Woodland Monitoring has never been so easy

With the increasing importance of enhancing and protecting biodiversity in our landscapes, many landowners and organisations often lack the data to demonstrate the impact of woodland creation and woodland management programmes.

Bioacoustic monitoring provides essential data insights to monitor key woodland species and assess biodiversity levels in woodland environments. The methodology is designed to be non-invasive and can be tailored to your requirements and woodland management plans.

Your Monitoring Plan

We can help create a simple monitoring plan based on your woodland, which is designed to be repeatable, so that it meets your requirements and woodland management plans.

Easy to use technology

Nature is complex, but monitoring doesn’t have to be.

We use cutting edge acoustic monitoring technology to monitor wildlife, focussing on bird and bat species. Our easy-to-use recorders are deployed for 24/7 monitoring, capturing sound data that can be analysed to identify species and track their activity. The weather-proof units can be used in new-growth and mature woodland environments for quality results.

Woodland Indicator Species

Birds species are not only some of our most vibrant and fascinating species that inhabit our woodlands, but also practical indicators to monitor biodiversity. Any changes to your land and vegetation will influence the type and abundance of birds.

Many bat species in the UK are closely associated with woodlands. These habitats provide a rich source of insect prey and numerous roosting sites. The presence of bat species can tell us a lot about local habitats and the health of our land. They can also be effective indicator species; the change of diversity and abundance of many bat species can reflect the wider change of the local environment and other species groups, such as insects that they prey on.

High Quality Reporting for woodland monitoring

We provide valuable insights into the presence, distribution, and activity of individual species as well as overall biodiversity. To ensure the accuracy and reliability of our results, we use a mix of advanced AI, statistical analysis, and human verification.

With our service, you’ll receive clear reporting, and results displayed on a personalised online dashboard through Carbon Rewild Core, our nature data platform. This dashboard provides easy-to-understand metrics, allowing you to effectively communicate your findings.

Easy to use

Simple shipping process and device set up onsite. We do all the heavy lifting behind the scenes to process the data and deliver you the results.

Cost Effective

Accessible pricing to ensure you can monitor biodiversity for projects large and small.

Scalable

Scale monitoring with multiple recording devices and measure species distribution.

Repeatable

Benchmark your biodiversity through species richness, and repeat surveys over time to monitor biodiversity change.

Speedy results

We use the latest AI and statistical modelling to process the data quickly and accurately, and verify individual species to ensure accurate results.

Non-invasive

Our custom-designed, weather-proof recording devices are designed to stay out of sight and passively record sound data.
