      Forestry

      Our team is one of only a few able to offer a truly independent view of the forestry sector when delivering our trusted, market-leading consultancy service across this broad industry.

      A passion for forestry - and the economic and environmental benefits it delivers - is what drives the team.

      Each individual brings specialisms that enhance our offering and provide privileged market insight. The right mix of experience and fresh thinking gives us the edge.

      From the purchase of bare land for planting to the eventual sale of timber or the forest itself, we provide the root to tip ultimate service for landowners and investors. Our knowledge combines to set the standard. In fact, we pioneered the approved agreement structure for renewables to be sited within woodland. 

      We guide our clients along the journey from woodland creation or acquisition, through the management and maintenance programme to harvest and sales. Whether a £20m forestry portfolio or a single plantation, our focus is always on your ambition.

      Seeing the wood for the trees. What’s the ‘true value’ of UK Forestry?

      The total value of the world’s forests was estimated to be $150 Trillion in a recent Boston Consulting Group report - double the value of the global stock markets – with tree’s carbon storage ability amounting to 90% of this value.

      So why did tree planting across the UK last year total just 13,460 hectares?
