An independent view of a high-performance asset

Sustainably produced timber continues to outperform commercial property, bonds and equities, and prices will continue to rise above inflation as its benefits for flood mitigation, rural employment and carbon fixation become increasingly recognised and appreciated.

We work across Scotland and Northern England, managing hundreds of square miles of the UK’s forests, helping clients to make the most of opportunities in this high-performing asset class. We help clients, from the Forestry Commission to commercial investors, landowners and forest managers, to maximise the opportunities from this unique form of investment. 

Working closely with colleagues from Bidwells’ other specialist teams, including renewables, planning and rural agency, we bring you the right advice from the right people at the right time. In a strongly interconnected marketplace, we're entirely independent. We have no ties to timber companies, so we always act with your best interests at heart.

With our efficient and impartial strategic forestry management advice, Bidwells can help you to get the most from your assets: whether you’re exploring alternative land uses, from tourism to renewable energy, or keen to get the best price for your sustainably produced timber. 

Some of the ways we can support your forestry needs:

  • Strategic advice, annual budgeting, financial account management and VAT returns

  • Appointment and oversight of forest managers to deliver work programmes

  • Helping with technical forestry issues as part of the renewable energy planning process

  • Performing investment appraisals and valuations

  • Advising on timber marketing and sales

  • Advising on alternative land use within forests, e.g. tourism

  • Strategic planning

  • Overseeing projects

    unique to forest and woodland ownership
