After many years of dedicated service, it is with mixed feelings that we announce our retirement. Caledonian Forestry Services Ltd will cease trading on 18th September 2020.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our valued staff, suppliers and most of all our loyal customers, all without whom we could not have achieved such success, along with such incredible memories! We will miss you all dearly.


With this, we are pleased to announce Powells Forest & Garden Equipment Ltd as the new Palax dealer. For any future Palax machinery and assistance, please contact:
