Woodland and Forestry

As the UK's leading specialist team, our forestry division helps private, corporate and investor clients to achieve their forestry and woodland ambitions. 

Our forestry and woodland advisory services are run by our sector specialists John Clegg & Co and are part of the Strutt & Parker rural team.  We advise on every aspect of forestry, from large-scale commercial forests to small-scale mixed woodland managed for its amenity value. We operate throughout the UK, selling and buying woodland and providing independent forest asset management, valuations and investment advice.  

Our team can also advise you on the growing opportunities around carbon offsetting and the various forestry system of grants. 



We carry out independent RIC's standard valuations to help you understand the worth of your forestry or woodland assets.
