The ESN(F) investment portfolio of forestry and renewable energy assets spans Scotland and northern England
Scotland and North England
This green portfolio is not just about income - it’s about a long-term corporate and socially responsible investment which will stand the test of time. Since the mid-1980s, we have deployed our forestry and renewable energy expertise to add value and sensitively improve the client’s returns.
Today, ESN(F) has a high-quality, high-performing portfolio which it continues to augment with acquisitions. We provide the strategic forestry expertise to support this expansion, oversee the delivery of management and deal with leases, shooting rights, mineral extraction, access and the marketing of timber.
We are also deeply involved in promoting and negotiating wind farm developments on several of ESN(F)’s sites. Our client now has one of the best quality, financially stable forestry portfolios with considerable existing and potential windfarm developments in the country.
The whole asset is managed on a sustainable basis and is significantly cash positive. The second commercial-sized windfarm in Scotland, Windy Standard I, was developed on one of ESN(F)’s forestry properties almost 30 years ago. From that significant investment in renewable technology, they have continually grown their share in this sector alongside timber production.
The asset under our management extends to 8.800 hectares and enjoys consistently increasing capital value. Our successful working relationship has spanned more than three decades because we are entirely focussed on providing a high-level of service and meeting objectives.
