UK Forestry Market Report

The forestry market has had an ‘astonishing year’ with competitive bidding seeing average values rise significantly and the total value of the forestry investment market reach record levels, according to the latest edition of the UK Forest Market Report.

The 22nd edition of the annual report, produced by John Clegg & Co and Tilhill, highlights that the forestry and woodland sector has a very positive outlook.

It is an investment which over many successive years has steadily outperformed many other asset classes and one which has a key role to play as we move to a low carbon economy.

The report shows that in 2020 a total of £200.18m of forestry properties traded, the highest value traded on record, with the average cost of a forest property more than doubling from £1.56m in 2019 to £3.28m in 2020.
