Truroots is an ecological estate and woodland management business based in Forest Row, East Sussex. It was founded in 2004 to meet the needs of land owners and to support the growing awareness of conservation through sustainable management. The company has a strong ethos arising out of a passion for woodlands and wildlife, supporting and using traditional countryside crafts wherever possible. Whilst preserving these traditional roots Truroots successfully uses modern equipment and techniques to provide a professional and efficient service.

Truroots was founded and is run by Zohair Ghullam who grew up in rural North Norfolk. Surrounded by large sporting estates and ancient woodlands his interest in trees and the countryside developed. Prior to setting up Truroots, Zohair gained qualifications in Forestry and Countryside Conservation and experience with the National Trust as a Trainee Forester and Deer Keeper at Gunton Park in Norfolk. During five years working as Deer Manager he furthered his training with courses in deer management, habitat conservation and tree risk assessments.

Truroots is committed to providing all aspects of practical habitat, woodland and countryside management as well as fencing and tree surgery. We also provide and consult on mammal and deer management, grant applications and detailed biological surveys.
