Book tickets for 2021 UK Forest Market Report

1 min

Forestry is in the political and media spotlight like never before, but how is this increased awareness of the potential of trees affecting the UK commercial forestry and woodland investment market?

The government has an annual UK planting target of 30,000ha of new trees to 2050, with the forestry and woodland sector regarded as having a vital role to play in delivering net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

In addition, it is acknowledged that there are important social and economic benefits associated with increasing tree cover. Ministers’ enthusiasm for forestry also reflects a desire to increase UK timber output to enable an expansion of the low-carbon economy. There is also a growing appreciation of how allowing people greater access to woodlands can be good for physical and mental health.

John Clegg & Co, in partnership with Tilhill, will address how the drive to increase tree planting is influencing the investment market at the launch of the 2021 UK Forest Market Report, which will be themed What’s Next for Woodland?

The annual report, now in its 23rd year, provides an in-depth study of the UK commercial forestry and woodland investment market from the perspective of both buyers and sellers.

The launch will also include topical presentations from guest speakers who will be announced shortly.
