Forestry Fencing

High Tensile Deer Fencing from Tornado plays an important role in protecting forestry from browsing deer all over the UK and Europe.

There are six species of deer (Roe, Fallow, Red, Sika, Chinese Water Deer and Muntjac) living wild in UK today, with the current total population currently estimated at up to two million. The presence of too many deer in a particular area can lead to trees, woodland flora and wildlife habitats being damaged. Tornado, with our comprehensive and innovative range of deer fencing, has long been the first choice for forest managers looking to protect and preserve their valuable forestry.


The species of deer that need excluding is one of the key factors that need to considered when specifying a fence. Different species demonstrate unique behaviours when approaching a fence, choosing either to attempt to jump or push through the fence. High Tensile steel mesh fencing from Tornado provides a more robust solution than plastic netting and is more cost effective than individual tree guards.


New coppice shoots should be beyond the height that deer will browse in 3 – 4 years and lighter weight netting can be employed for these applications. Where protection is required on a permanent basis, the 2.5mm wire available within our High Tensile range should be selected.
