      Strategic Forestry Management

      Regarded as ‘architects of the forested landscape’, our highly specialised team identifies opportunities with real growth potential, then helps purchase and manage that asset for you.


      The ESN(F) investment portfolio of forestry and renewable energy assets spans Scotland and northern England

      As one of the most prominent forestry consultants in the UK, we appraise and value before recommending sound forestry investment strategies and management plans.

      We provide a worry-free means of acquiring forestry and make the whole process of investment and management as simple as possible. By keeping a watching brief on timber markets, costs, policy and legislation, we provide a comprehensive professional service.

      Our expertise goes beyond sales and acquisition - ably advising on sporting interests, carbon sequestration, energy and renewables and planning. We’ll navigate the regulatory maze, keeping you informed as much (or as little) as you like.

      Our clients, and their interests are diverse, but we have one objective – providing sound, independent and focussed advice to deliver client expectations. Whether you are an individual seeking to invest for future generations or an institutional financier interested in carbon off-setting - forestry delivers.

      With government and public opinion giving forestry the green light, well-managed forestry is a sound long-term investment. From the ground up, we’ll ensure your woodland stands the test of time.
