Forest Fencing in Dorset: Deer fencing, rabbit fencing, stakes, barbed and plain wire, gates, styles, barriers and bollards, ecological fencing
The forest fencing specification is for protection of a managed area from all types of deer and a combination of these with cattle and/or sheep.
The minimum fence height for protection against roe deer is 1.5 metres. The minimum fence height for protection against red, sika or fallow deer is 1.8 metres. We can use woven high tensile, mild steel or welded rectangular mesh. The netting can vary from half to full length.
There is a wide range of types and specifications of fence available and it is important that an appropriate choice is made for a particular situation if both the objective and best value for money is to be achieved. For long-term fences this choice may need to take into account future expansion of ranges, e.g. muntjac deer, wild boar. Conversely, removal of fences when the objective has been achieved, e.g. trees are large enough or deer populations have been reduced by other means to acceptable levels, is also an integral part of the process.
